Overview


The Orangemen-say the name and basketball fans everywhere immediately recognize the team from Syracuse University. For more than one hundred years, they have been playing basketball up on "the Hill." Their history is one of growth and continued success, all of which is documented with rare archival photographs in The Orangemen: Syracuse University Men's Basketball.

Syracuse University fielded its first men's basketball team in 1900 and enjoyed many successes in the program's early years. Legendary players highlighted the time: Lewis Castle, the first of Syracuse's thirty-two All-Americans; Vic Hanson, the only player enshrined in both the College Football and Naismith Memorial Basketball Halls of Fame; and Wilmeth Sidat-Singh, the first African American to play at Syracuse. Longtime coach Jim Boeheim is one of just twenty-five Division I coaches with more than six hundred victories. The Orangemen: Syracuse University Men's Basketball will take fans back to Manley Field House and the days of the zoo. More recent photographs of Carrier Dome favorites such as Pearl Washington, Derrick Coleman, Sherman Douglas, Lawrence Moten, and John Wallace will complete the picture of one of college basketball's most successful and enduring teams.
