The Syracuse basketball season needs to get here already. Is anyone else dying to see what Kaleb Joseph and Chris McCullough can do in an Orange uniform?
Alas, the season is still a few months away. And after losing C.J. Fair, Jerami Grant, Tyler Ennis and Baye Keita, some would say it is shaping up to be a down year for the Orange in 2014-15.
But that's not necessarily the case. Jim Boeheim still has some playmakers on his team, and they can help the Orange get to the NCAA tournament once again.
The lineup will look much different than it did last year, and there could be several new faces in next year's starting lineup.
For the purposes of this article, I'm expecting the starters to be Joseph, Trevor Cooney, Tyler Roberson, Chris McCullough and Rakeem Christmas. That could change, but right now I think that is how the starting five will shake out.
So with that out of the way, let's take a look at one reason why each projected starter can have a successful season in 2014-15.
