Syracuse.com’s Chris Carlson calls in to chat about Darius Bazley’s decision to go to the G League and his thoughts on Tyus Battle and Oshae Brissett potentially leaving on The Juice on the Cuse Podcast hosted by SNY.tv. Brad Bierman also calls in to discuss SU lacrosse’s recent surge.

Here are the highlights from the show:

Wes Cheng: Syracuse is still adding three players to the team next year: Jalen Carey. Boeheim’s son and Elijah Hughes. Do you see next year’s team having a better win/loss record in the regular season?

Chris Carlson: I think so. I think Marek Dolezaj is going to be really good next year because you kind of saw him getting there at the end of this year. You’re going to have a healthy Bourama Sidibe in the middle. At the beginning of the year, he looked like the better center, granted, against lower level competition. You’re going to see those guys improve. Elijah Hughes has gotten rave reviews from players in practices. […] There’s a little more depth and I think the team will be better this year than it was this year.
