NCAA Watch: Syracuse Brings Out Heavy Hitters

NCAA Watch: Syracuse Brings Out The Heavy Hitters

words_Brandon Richard

After a fast 18-0 start, the Syracuse Orange dropped their first game of the season, losing to conference rival Pittsburgh on Monday. Despite the loss, the #3 ranked Orange are playing some of the best basketball in the country, and will be one of the names to look out for when tournament time rolls around in a couple of months.

In addition to their top tier on-court performances, Syracuse may be the college hoops team wearing the best kicks. In recent games, we’ve seen everything from Jordan retros to the new Nike shoes for Kobe Bryant and LeBron James on the feet of Syracuse players.

To check out what the Orange and players from other top NCAA programs are wearing, check out this week’s NCAA Watch.
