Best of What’s Around – St. John’s and SU vie for New York City

Syracuse vs. St. John’s: New York’s College Teams |

By all accounts if you were visiting NYC from a foreign country during late December, no one would have blame you for thinking Syracuse University was actually located in Manhattan. It was DOC Gross’ dream come true (he’s still working on that Manhattan move…). The flip side, however, is that DOC’s dream is St. John’s nightmare.

Brandon’s Breakout |

UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma was questioned following practice Monday about his friendship with Syracuse men’s coach Jim Boeheim.
