As of now, the Syracuse basketball team is devoid of very much star power.
Jim Boeheim lost three of the top four players from a rotation that struggled to go seven deep, so unproven players will have to step up to fill the shoes of the departed stars.
But players get better with time and opportunities. Syracuse has a couple of talented incoming freshmen, and there are several upperclassmen ready to become leaders of the team.
The Orange probably won't have anyone challenging for ACC Player of the Year, but Boeheim does have talented players who can be among the best in the conference. Let's look at the Orange players who are the surest bets to get on the All-ACC team at the end of the season.
We'll order the players based on how likely they are to get on the team as well as what level (first, second or third team) they could realistically get to. At the end of each slide, we'll give each player's ceiling, or the highest level they could reach with an outstanding season.
