The Orangemen Are No. 1!

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE SYRACUSE ORANGEMEN!!


A special SHOUTOUT! to the Syracuse Orangemen for reaching the regular season No. 1 ranking for the first time in 20 years. Even though they were the 2003 NCAA champions, the Orangemen never reached the No. 1 ranking that season. They won the championship as the No. 3 seed in the tournament. The last time they were the outright No. 1 team in the nation was in the 1989-1990 season.

The Orangemen (28-2) have already won the Big East outright so next up-- a No. 1 seed and bracketmania. From the looks of it, the Kansas Jayhawks, the Kentucky Wildcats and the Duke Blue Devils will join the Orangemen with the coveted No. 1 seeds in the tournament.
