Syracuse Orange Basketball Tickets
The Syracuse Orange men's basketball team has one of the top programs in the nation. The "Orangemen" have played in three NCAA championships and have emerged victorious once. The Syracuse basketball program ranks in the top 10 for most victories by an NCAA basketball team and has posted winning records for nearly 50 consecutive years. The Orange has appeared in 40 NCAA tournaments and has made it to the Final Four six times. The Syracuse Orange found itself in unfamiliar territory as it was unranked in major preseason polls to begin the 2002-2003 NCAA basketball season. However, that was the season when freshman sensation Carmelo Anthony led the charge as the program earned its first championship. Syracuse joined the Big East Conference in 1979. The team won 10 regular-season Big East titles and five tournament titles before leaving for the ACC in 2013. Coach Jim Boeheim has been the man in charge in Syracuse, N.Y., for more than four decades. Get your seats at the game at StubHub.
