This Syracuse basketball team, currently ranked No. 1 in both polls, could be the deepest it’s ever been in school history. Coach Jim Boeheim is not known for having much depth on the bench, and that was proven when only seven players logged more than 15 minutes of action when the Orange beat the UConn Huskies 127-117 in six overtimes back in 2009.
Jonny Flynn led the way playing a total of 67 of the 70 total minutes the clock ticked. Fast forward to 2011, nine players have played in all 13 games thus far this season, and one player has played in 12. Could this team really have nine future NBA players on it roster? Let’s take a look.
