With all the publicity Syracuse University’s basketball program has received in recent weeks, the private school from upstate New York is under a microscope. The allegations against recently fired assistant coach Bernie Fine are deeply troubling and hopefully justice is served swiftly and fairly for all involved.
The news surrounding Syracuse isn’t all bad, though. Syracuse is a Top Five team with national championship aspirations. Perhaps now is a good time to get reacquainted with some of the players who turned Syracuse into a basketball powerhouse.
Ranking Syracuse’s best players was no easy task to take. With over 100 years of history, Syracuse has had its share of dominating players and comparing eras is never wise, but with that in mind, I present the top 50 players in Syracuse history.
While this list is not scientific, it is well thought-out. I'm sure some of the rankings are questionable to some, but my true hope is that there were no omissions.
With that said, let the discussion begin.
