Syracuse Basketball's Wish List for 2012

With the tremendous season Syracuse men’s basketball is enjoying, ringing in a new year is a most enjoyable experience. The top-ranked Orange and coach Jim Boeheim are certainly happy about how 2011 ended and will try to duplicate the success in 2012.

Syracuse hopes to keep focused, but with a new year comes a new challenge. That challenge being the Big East regular season. The Orange kicked off its conference schedule with a 75-49 tail-whipping of Seton Hall and the game wasn’t as close as the score. Seton Hall came into the Carrier Dome with a shiny 11-1 record, but left the building with a full understanding that papa don’t take no mess, and neither does Syracuse (apologies to Leonard Washington).

The 26-point drubbing should serve to send a message that Syracuse is dedicated to the defensive end of the court and has the length to quiet the noisiest of offenses.

New Year’s Day brings the promise of washing dirt away and making new again. Syracuse has a few things it would like to wash away, but also has a foundation of success it will continue to build upon.

These are the biggest hopes of Syracuse for 2012.
