The Syracuse University football program got its first commitment in five months on Saturday when offensive lineman John Miller of Los Angeles Harbor Junior College told coaches he would play for the Orange.
In only 28 minutes, Carter-Williams stuffed the stat sheet with 8 points, 13 assists, six rebounds and four steals. Perhaps even more impressive was that the sophomore committed just a single turnover.

Syracuse basketball’s Michael Carter-Williams, who is coming off a 17 point performance against San Diego State in the Battle on the Midway, is on the watch list for the Naismith National Player of the Year.
