Syracuse basketball may need to take one step backward to take two steps forward

This may not be what Syracuse Orange basketball fans want to hear, but it could very well be the truth for the future of the program.

Syracuse is coming off of a 19-15 season, but more importantly lost its top recruiter and coach-in-waiting, Mike Hopkins, and one of its best players in Tyler Lydon.

Things aren’t exactly ideal right now in the SU hoops world, but Jim Boeheim is doing what he can to make it better. He’s been on the recruiting trail and is realizing what SU needs to make sure a year like 2016-17 doesn’t happen again under his watch.
