Losing two of the most veteran leaders in Kris Joseph and Scoop Jardine to graduation hurts. Even worse is losing two of your most impact sophomore players on the offense and defense in Dion Waiters and Fab Melo to the NBA draft. You might think there is no way this Syracuse team can compete for a national championship.
You are dead wrong.
Let me to tell you why this Syracuse team will not only compete for a title but win it all. It starts with what the Orange already have from last year, and that is depth.
The team did have 10 players last year that averaged at least 10 minutes a game, and Syracuse has six of those 10 coming back in the 2012-2013 season.
