Each week over the summer, The Juice Online will be counting down the top 15 players in Syracuse basketball history. Louie Orr is No. 15 on our list.
WHY HE’S NO. 15: Orr and Roosevelt Bouie combined to form the Bouie ‘N Louie show at Syracuse from 1976 to 1980. Orr was Syracuse’s first recruit under the Jim Boeheim era, and by the time he left The Hill, he accumulated a 100-18 record. By his senior season, he averaged 16.0 points and 8.5 rebounds per game, and was named an All-American and to the All Big East First Team.
AFTER SYRACUSE: Orr was selected with the 28th pick of the 1980 draft by the Indiana Pacers. He played two years with the Pacers before he moved on to play six seasons with the New York Knicks. Orr enjoyed his finest pro season in the 1984-85 season, averaging 12.7 points and 4.9 rebounds.
After his professional playing career, Orr moved on to coaching where he was an assistant at Xavier, Providence and Syracuse. Orr was also a head coach at Siena and Seton Hall before he became the head coach at Bowling Green in 2007. In the 2011-12 season, Bowling Green went 16-16, and went to the CIT First Round.
