Jerami Grant, 6-7, SF, Syracuse (5.6 ppg, 5.0 rpg): "He didn't shoot very well (7-of-25), but he'll end up being a Kris Joseph or Wesley Johnson for Syracuse in time. He's rangy, long and can play two different positions. His upside may be greater than anyone else on the team. He's so long and athletic. Once he knocks down shots he'll be really special.''

9:34 — "With the 21st pick, the Celtics take … Sully!" Good. Now what? Perry Jones? Do we roll the dice twice? If you're basing everything on the question, "What do we need to beat Miami?," then they need to take someone else who's taller than, say, 6-foot-8. The Celtics need size. Fellow Celtics fan Jacoby wants Jones, explaining, "Even if we go one for two, that means we turned 21 and 22 into a lottery talent." House thinks Jones should be the pick because "Who else is left at this point, Fab Melo?" For once, I don't have an opinion … as long as it's not Fab Melo. I just watched Miami and Oklahoma City basically say, "The league is getting faster, you don't need centers anymore, you need athletes." Where does Fab Melo fit into that last sentence? And why do I have the sinking feeling we're taking him, anyway? 9:41 — Yup … Fab Melo. His averages for Syracuse last year: 7.8 points, 5.8 rebounds. "He's still coming on as a player," Bilas says in the understatement of the last five centuries. Unbelievable. 9:42 — My dad texts me, "Hey, at least we know Fab will be better than Ryan Hollins." Time to start drinking.

Michael Carter-Williams, Syracuse: How deep were the 2012 Syracuse Orange? Carter-Williams, a McDonald's All-American ranked No. 4 at the shooting guard position in the Class of 2012 (behind only Duke's Austin Rivers, Florida's Bradley Beal and UNC's P.J. Hairston) played just 18.1 percent of his team's available minutes, per KenPom.com, and couldn't register even a minute of floor time in Syracuse's four NCAA tournament games. The departures of Scoop Jardine and Dion Waiters will make way for Carter-Williams to shine, and shine he will.

Myron Medcalf: Eamonn, one thing is clear right now: Syracuse is No. 1 in the Big East and in the nation. Marquette put up a fight late but Syracuse didn't panic Saturday. The "Are they really No. 1 in the nation?" questions must stop.

Big East (Syracuse, 61%) Somehow, the Orange lead the nation in steal percentage and are second in block percentage and yet their defense isn’t dominant. (Partial explanation: anemic defensive rebounding.) The Orange have been consistently fantastic on offense, though, scoring at least a point per possession in all but one game. They get one additional game against the five Big East bottom dwellers compared to Marquette giving them a little more room for error in this analysis.

5. Syracuse is for real. Most folks probably realized that already. But any skeptics of the No. 1-ranked Orange probably don’t have many doubts about their potential after Saturday’s 88-72 spanking of North Carolina State. The victory came against a solid, well-coached Wolfpack squad that was back by 19,400 rowdy fans at the RBC Center. Dion Waiters scored 22 points off the bench and Kris Joseph added 21 for Syracuse, which was playing outside of its home state for the first time this season.

Raleigh, N.C. (Syracuse at NC State): Hallelujah, hallelujah -- Jim Boeheim's team is finally going on the road. The Orange have yet to leave the state of New York this season, so it will be interesting to see how they handle a game they should win, but one whose location presents distinct challenges this particular team has yet to face. -- Eamonn Brennan

2. Syracuse's rebuilding remains a work in progress under third-year coach Doug Marrone, but it has become clear that you don't want to get in a close game with the Orange. Syracuse avoided its fourth overtime game this season when Ross Krautman kicked a 21-yard field goal with no time left to win at Tulane 37-34. In games decided by seven points or fewer, the Orange are 4-1 this season and 8-1 since the beginning of 2010.

"They take it almost as seriously as soccer," says Eric Devendorf (Syracuse), who played for two months in Turkey and then bolted. "At one of our games, the fans came on the floor and tried to fight us! It's a whole different world over there. Women wearing burkas. People dropping in the street to pray all the time. It's just different. And the cities are real dirty. Man, if you don't have Slingbox you got nothing. I'm never going back. No way."

87. Orange Glow Ernie Davis goes deep on halfback option Jan. 1, 1960: Syracuse closed out its undefeated national championship season with a 23-14 win over Texas in the Cotton Bowl. It was the second play of the game that set the tone for Syracuse. Quarterback Dave Sarette pitched out to halfback Ger Schwedes, who threw the ball to Ernie Davis downfield. Davis caught the ball, despite getting bumped as the pass arrived, and raced 87 yards for the score. At the time, it was the longest passing play in bowl history. -- Andrea Adelson

What is the toughest BCS coaching job in terms of recruiting? Brian Perroni: Syracuse has a lot of disadvantages when it comes to recruiting. The school is not in or near very fertile recruiting ground so the staff has to travel far and wide to find prospects. It can also be a very tough sell to players from the South when they travel to Syracuse on official visits during the season and find very cold temperatures. The Orange spend time recruiting in both Texas and Florida but they have to convince players to go far from home and live in the cold. That's not an easy job.
