DC is Cuse Country

This is a photo of a sign blog contributor Josh made before a game against Georgetown in Washington. It became something of a running joke in our crew: Wherever we were, that was Cuse Country. When it came time to name this little project of ours, it seemed a natural fit. Holy crap, the Internet is Cuse Country!

Now, the time has come to move to nicer real estate. And with football season looming like an orange cloud of noxious gas, we’re moving to a new address that doesn’t have “hoops” in the URL.

So come visit us at CuseCountry.com. Same great stuff, new great home.

Hello Goodbye (Pro Update 4-4)

Posted by Josh on April 4, 2007

It’s been over two weeks since my last update. Between NIT mania, my birthday, the SOB Awards and my trip to NYC last weekend, I haven’t had a solid block of time to put together an update with all the information that you, our loyal readers, so desperately crave. But now I do! We’ll start with the newest addition to our updates:

Jeremy McNeil is back in the D-League!

Correction: McNeil was back in the D-League. He signed with the Fort Worth Flyers back on March 6. I didn’t discover this information until March 25 — and he was promptly released on March 29. You can see both transactions in the list here (scroll down and look for “Player Movement” which lists the transactions not involving NBA teams). He didn’t do much: his best game was 5 points and 4 rebounds during a blowout loss on March 21. Here are his complete stats for the nine games he was in. At least this was a better stint than his week with Long Beach in March ’06. (Spooky: last year he was cut on March 30. Beware the end of March, Jeremy!) I do not have any information to indicate that he has since signed with another team but will keep a close eye on it, now that I know he is still actively trying to play ball for a living.

So, on to the players who are still playing (and there is a lot to tell!):

No Catchy Title This Time (Pro Update 3-19)

The Next Generation (Pro Update 3-1)

Posted by Josh on March 1, 2007

With so much current SU action, it’s been hard to find time to check in on the grownups. So get ready to dive in.

(HEY guess what! Europe news below has been updated with two new items since the original post.)
NBA

Grown-ups, indeed. Carmelo Anthony is going to be a daddy! His fiancee La La Vasquez is expecting to give birth in about a week. Melo has celebrated by leading the Nuggets to consecutive wins for the first time since Feb 10-12. Over the last week Baby Daddy scored 36, 34, 33, and 23 points (chronologically). The Nuggets lost those first two games (to the Jazz and Mavs) but won the latter two (against the Grizz and Magic). Carmelo also has been grabbing about 6 rebounds per game. Most importantly, with the exception of last night’s Orlando game, his shooting percentages in the other three games was back above 50% (and as high as 67%). These are his first games above 50% since he returned from suspension in mid-January. And he is still leading the Association in scoring.

My kid was up crying all night, I am EXHAUSTED!!

Is Arinze Onuaku In Your Top Eight?

Posted by Jer on February 21, 2007

Have you ever wondered what Paul Harris’s favorite tv show is? (it’s The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air)

Did you know that terrenceroberts.com loves a certain type of dog? (pit bulls)

Did you know that Josh Pace has yet to decide whether he would like to have kids?

How about Billy Celuk? Did you know that it seems he may have spent much of his time at SU thinking about guns?

Enter the wonderful world that is MySpace. On a lark, I decided to see if any current Syracuse players had MySpace profiles. As shocking as this may seem, it appears that these college kids don’t spend all of their time devising ways to win another national championship. I was also able to uncover a number of pages for former Syracuse players from Jessup, PA to Kouvola, Finland.

Disclaimer: Note that just because someone has a MySpace page doesn’t mean that they created it personally, but it’s usually fairly easy to spot the real from the fake. Also note that Arinze Onuaku has spent an inordinate amount of his time off this year working on his profile.

I Heart Snow (Pro Update 2-14)

Posted by Josh on February 14, 2007

What better Valentine’s Day gift than an ice storm cancelling classes so I can stay home and blog, but the weather then getting above freezing so I can easily clean off my car?

NBA

Carmelo was named Western Conference Player of the Week for last week (Feb 4-10). Among his accomplishments, which I failed to mention in my last Update, was a triple-double (31, 10, 10) vs. Phoenix on Feb 5. He was also chosen for the All-Star Team as an injury replacement on Friday. Since that day, the Nuggets have won three in a row. Melo had 34, 6, & 5 vs. Indiana Friday, 29, 8, & 10 vs. Milwaukee Saturday, and 28, 8, & 5 vs. the Warriors on Monday. This marks 5 straight games in which he has had 5 or more assists, starting with that triple-double. Two different articles are suggesting that the All-Star selection has taken some emotional pressure off Anthony, and attributed the Nuggets’ win streak to this new atmosphere. Me, I think it has more to do with Marcus Camby being healthy. But if it helps ‘Melo to relax, it can only be a good thing for the Nuggets. They face Minnesota tonight in their last contest before the All-Star Break.

Last night, Hakim Warrick helped lead the Grizzlies to victory.
