The game ended with a storming of the court worse than last year’s Georgetown game. But anyway you slice it, the Orange suffered a disappointing loss. In the midst of this BIG EAST gauntlet, Providence was supposed to be the easy one.

Yet, just like the previous two games, Syracuse comes away with the ‘L’.
There to witness it all was Ryan Miller ’09 and David Resnick ’10.
Hardly a large crowd (a bit more than 10,000), but an impressively loud student section kept the Dunkin Donuts Center rockin’ from start to finish.
The basketball team and CitrusTV now get to enjoy at least a little bit of time back in Syracuse; the next road trip isn’t until February 7th. SU travels south to Villanova — and so will CitrusTV.

After a successful fall semester of SUper Sports, the Sports Department ventured away from the friendly confines of the studios and hit to the hardwood once again. The latest SUper Sports production features the Syracuse women’s basketball team against Pittsburgh.

It’s the second time SUper Sports covered a women’s basketball game and what an exciting contest it was. SU trailed most of the way, tied the game up with under a minute remaining and lost on a buzzer beater. A boisterous Carrier Dome fell silent as the ball ripped through the nylon.
Following a road game on Tuesday, the Coach Hillsman and the girls will be back inside of the Carrier Dome to take on Villanova in another BIG EAST conference match up. SUper Sports will be there too, bringing you all of the best action from Syracuse’s non-revenue sports.
That will mark the last game of our three game basketball package before we head on to cover women’s ice hockey and women’s lacrosse.
To check out some pictures from Saturday’s production, head over to the SUper Sports page.

Over Martin Luther King weekend, four members of the class of 2008 made their way back to the hill to catch up with friends, professors and take in some Syracuse basketball vs Notre Dame.
All four members contributed both on and off air during their time at CitrusTV. Each held a producer position for at least a year and was an anchor and/or host of one of the three weekly shows.
Here’s an update on each alumni:

The Syracuse men’s basketball team hit the road again after a home date with Notre Dame — and CitrusTV was there to take in the action. Anne McNamara ’11 and Tim Swartz ’09 represented CitrusTV down in the steel city.

While the Carrier Dome is an incredible home court advantage, the Petersen Events Center is no slouch. The facility is only 5 years old and the student section is in the lower bowl and surrounds three sides of the court.
“The atmosphere was incredible. Pitt fans were seated around the entire court and they made their presence known,” said McNamara. Now I understand why the student section is nicknamed the ‘Zoo’.”
Syracuse is back in action on Sunday, home against Louisville. After that, it’s traveling time. The Syracuse men’s basketball team and CitrusTV will head to Providence, Rhode Island for a date with the Friars.
