Syracuse Basketball: 5 Things Still on Orange's Offseason To-Do List

In less than a month, the Syracuse Orange will start their 113th season of college basketball, yet they find themselves new kids on the block.

Looking to add to its NCAA-record 42 consecutive winning seasons, Syracuse enters the ACC after a trip to the Final Four and a mass exodus from the Big East.

Since that trip, however, Syracuse has lost James Southerland and Brandon Triche to graduation and Michael Carter-Williams to the NBA draft. The Orange believe they have a replacement for Carter-Williams in Tyler Ennis, but the loss of Triche's leadership and Southerland's marksmanship left a few holes to be filled.

Forgetting the roster gaps, the Orange have had a successful recruiting campaign but still have a little ways to go. Brooklyn prodigy guard Isaiah Whitehead shunned Syracuse, Indiana and a few other schools for Seton Hall in what seems to be a deal to get Whitehead’s high school coach, Tiny Morton, a future job at Seton Hall.

Making no such deals, Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim still has one scholarship to offer a member of the class of 2014, but time is of the essence.

Beyond recruiting, Syracuse had a few boxes that needed to be checked off in the offseason.

Here’s a look at the Orange’s unresolved business.
