Syracuse's season did not end exactly how many people had hoped or expected. They could not get past the first weekend of March Madness after securing a three seed for the tournament. Marquette got the better of them that day winning 66-62.

Coach Boeheim was also able to secure a pretty impressive recruiting class with two McDonald's All-Americans and one more player in ESPN Top 100.
I have come up with 10 bold predictions for this Orange squad and some might surprise you.
