The 2014-2015 men’s basketball season had little to do with the on-court product. A postseason ban midway through the conference year ended any slim hope the Orange may have had at sliding into the NCAA Tournament. With a season that is set to start Friday, the focus is “Back to Basketball.” The stories in this guide detail the theme of the new season. Dajuan Coleman and Brittney Sykes are healthy after returning from debilitating multi-year injuries. Michael Gbinije is taking over as SU’s point guard while his backup Kaleb Joseph has shown an improved shooting ability. The D.O. also commemorates Jim Boeheim, who is the face of a program that is hoping to reshape its reputation after a season that wasn’t about basketball.
