Welsh: Syracuse basketball has depth, experience for deep NCAA run

Welsh: Ennis and Grant should stay at Syracuse

ESPN and SNY’s Tim Welsh calls in to chat about the upcoming 2016-17 basketball season with Wes Cheng on The Juice on the Cuse Podcast hosted by SNY.tv. The Juice Online Editor in Chief Brad Bierman calls in after to talk about Syracuse’s loss to Clemson.

Here are the highlights from the show:

Wes Cheng: You’ve been in and around the Syracuse basketball program for more than two decades now. Is this one of the deepest teams you’ve seen during that time?

Tim Welsh: I really believe it is. When you talk to Jim Boeheim, he feels the same way. I heard him mention the dreaded words man-to-man defense because they have so much depth. He will put that into play at times this year using it. If you have depth this year, you’re going to have to take advantage of it. I think Jim will find ways to use that.

WC: Should Syracuse fans be worried that SU doesn’t have a 2017 commit yet?

TW: The end of last season is going to be a carry over into this season. There are a lot of high expectations, but a lot of good quality basketball with no real ups and downs like they had last year. They’re going to be at a high level all season long and if you’re doing that, you have a chance to get to the national championship and do well, and I think this year Syracuse will do well in the tournament.
