Syracuse basketball fans have enjoyed a very good period in recent times.
The past decade in particular has offered a few Elite Eights, a couple Final Fours and that elusive NCAA championship they’ve been dreaming of for so long.
Add to that, a few overtime thrillers, fantastic recruiting and a 900th win for Jim Boeheim, who has patrolled the Syracuse sideline for his entire coaching career.
With Syracuse coming off of its latest trip to the Final Four, Orange fans have enjoyed more than a taste of good basketball living; they’ve grown accustomed to the high life. With the metropolitan lights of the Big East in the rear view mirror and the grunge of Tobacco Road and the ACC on the horizon, Syracuse fans have a new reason to rejoice with a whole conference full of teams that are not accustomed to playing against the Boeheim zone.
Regardless, Syracuse has found success against ACC teams over the past decade. The Orange played 11 games against ACC foes over the past 10 years and have a 10-1 record to show for it, including a win over North Carolina in 2009 in the 2K Sports Classic Championship at Madison Square Garden.
Let us now take a look back at the last decade of Syracuse basketball and remember some of the greatest moments.
