SYRACUSE: Last season: 23-14, lost in the Sweet 16 of NCAA Tournament
Nickname: Orange
Coach: Jim Boeheim, 43rd season
Conference: Atlantic Coast
Who's gone: F Matthew Moyer transferred after his redshirt freshman year and graduate transfer G Geno Thorpe left the team after six games.
Who's back: G Tyus Battle, the team's leading scorer last season (19.2), decided to return for his junior year after testing his NBA chances. He'll be joined by sophomore F Oshae Brissett, who's coming off an impressive freshman season (14.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, 38 minutes), senior G Frank Howard (14.4 points, 4.7 assists), sophomore F Marek Dolezaj (5.8 points, 4.8 rebounds), and C Paschal Chukwu (5.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, 91 blocks). Also returning are: G Howard Washington, who's recovering from a torn ACL; F Bourama Sidibe, who had offseason surgery for tendinitis; and G/F Elijah Hughes, who had to sit last year after transferring from East Carolina.
Who's new: Boeheim welcomes a class that includes G Jalen Carey, F Robert Braswell, and Boeheim's youngest son, Buddy, a 6-foot-5 point guard who will wear No. 35, the same number his dad wore when he played for the Orange in the 1960s.
The Skinny: Last year Syracuse was picked in the preseason to finish 10th and pretty much lived up to the low expectations as injuries plagued a team that finished 8-10 in the ACC. But unlike the year before when Syracuse was the top seed in the NIT, meaning the Orange were the last team out of the NCAA Tournament, they managed to squeak in last March as the last team in and won three games to reach the Sweet 16, stunning Arizona State, TCU and Michigan State in low-scoring games before losing to Duke by just 4 points. This year's team is ranked 16th in the preseason poll, has the personnel to vie for a top spot in the ACC and, for a change, easily secure an NCAA Tournament bid.
Expectations: Las Vegas oddsmakers have Syracuse a long shot to win the NCAA Tournament, on par with Purdue and well behind ACC rival Duke and Kentucky, the top two favorites. ___
No. 15 Syracuse renews rivalry with UConn

NEW YORK -- Syracuse and Connecticut, former members of the Big East Conference, will renew their rivalry when they meet for the 95th time in the semifinals of the 2K Empire Classic, benefiting the Wounded Warrior Foundation, at Madison Square Garden on Friday.

It will mark the 37th consecutive season that No. 15 Syracuse will play at Madison Square Garden.

Syracuse (2-0) and UConn (2-0) last played as Big East opponents in 2013. Since the conference broke up, Syracuse went to the ACC and UConn headed to the American Athletic Conference.

No. 13 Oregon and Iowa play the other game on Thursday, with the winners advancing to Friday's final.

Connecticut is Syracuse's fifth-most familiar opponent. The Orange have a 56-38 advantage in the series. The Orange defeated the Huskies 72-63 a year ago at the Garden, when UConn made just 20 of 47 shots from the field.

Syracuse returns most of its team from last season, which reached the Elite Eight. Junior guard Tyus Battle, who started all 37 games and led the team in scoring a season ago (19.2 ppg.), is on the watch list for the Naismith Trophy and the Wooden and NABC Player of the Year awards.

Battle led all Division I players in minutes played average in 2018-19, logging 39.0 per outing. He went through the pre-NBA Draft process last year, but ultimately withdrew his name to return to Syracuse for his third season. He's averaging 15.5 points in the Orange's two games this season.

"I think he (Battle) had a tremendous offseason," Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim told USA Today. "He worked extremely hard. He's shooting the ball better. Overall, he's a better player. He had a really good year last year, made a lot of big shots in a lot of games. I think his shooting percentages will get better because he'll have other guys to take some of the burden off."

Frank Howard, Syracuse's senior point guard, has been out with an ankle injury since September and is questionable for Thursday.

Paschal Chukwu (7-foot-2), Oshae Brissett (6-8) and Elijah Hughes (6-6), hold down the Orange's vaunted 2-3 zone.

"Playing against their zone is probably 30 to 35 percent of what the game is," first-year Huskies coach Danny Hurley told the Hartford Courant. "Sometimes, you get so stuck on, 'How are we going to score against the zone?' But there are other things we need to do well so that it doesn't come down to just that one aspect."

UConn enters the contest shooting 51.2 percent in its first two games and features four double-figure scorers, led by senior Jalen Adams (18.0) and grad student Tarin Smith (17.0), who are both shooting .636 overall. Redshirt sophomore Alterique Gilbert (13.5) and Josh Carlton (13.0) also are in double figures, while junior Christian Vital is the leading rebounder (9.0) and Gilbert is tops in assists (4.0).

Thursday's game will be the 117th contest for UConn at the Garden. The Huskies are 62-54 (.534) in games played there. They have won 10 championships at the arena.
