Syracuse basketball legend Demetris Nichols joins host Wes Cheng on The Juice on the Cuse podcast hosted by to discuss his Syracuse career, his favorite place to play abroad, and the 2019 TBT. TJO Columnist Jim Stechschulte then calls in to chat about the 2019 Syracuse football season.

Here are the highlights from the show:

Wesley Cheng: Demetris, you’ll be broadcasting the games for ESPN Radio. Break down this year’s roster for me. What do you like about this year’s team?

Demetris Nichols: This team has a lot of pieces. Obviously Eric Devendorf, Hakim Warrick, they’ve been playing Boeheim’s Army for a long time. They are experienced. […] Jordan Crawford, he didn’t go to Syracuse, so if people don’t know, he’s a 6’4″ shooting guard who played for the Atlanta Hawks, the Washington Wizards, the Golden State Warriors, the New Orleans Pelicans and the Boston Celtics. He has eight years of NBA experience. Adding him to the roster adds another scorer. Another guy who get to the paint to create a shot for himself or create a shot for somebody else. I’m pretty sure they have what it takes. I’ll be there in spirit. And I hope that they can get it done this year.
