Syracuse has quietly built itself into an NBA Draft ‘factory’

Earlier this week, we looked at the 10 most recent first-round NBA Draft picks for the Syracuse Orange. While it was awesome to see so many players picked post-Carmelo Anthony, the glaring takeaway was that few of those players have really taken off at the next level.

Bossi’s rankings look at the last 10 years and count up first round draft picks to determine which schools finish where. Kentucky, Duke, Kansas and North Carolina are your top four (in that order), obviously. But after that, you’ll find UCLA (okay), and then… Syracuse.
