Syracuse Basketball has had a long and rich history full of talent. It’s time to continue the countdown of the top 30 players in Cuse history.

Syracuse Basketball is a storied program and an NCAA powerhouse. A lot of that has to do with Jim Boeheim’s impact since he became coach in 1976. He turned a good program into a great one, and for that, he is considered one of the all-time greatest coaches.

How much do we really know about Syracuse Basketball’s past though? Do we know some of Syracuse’s All-Time Greatest Players?

To gain a deeper respect and knowledge of Syracuse Basketball, Inside the Loud House has done its research and compiled a list of the Top 50 players we believe were the best to ever don an Orange uniform.

Though Boeheim did not coach everyone that is listed in this Top 50 we’ve created, he did coach the majority of them. That just goes to show his ability to bring in and develop boys into men while playing for Syracuse University.

This Top 50 is Inside the Loud House’s best attempt at ranking the Top 50 Basketball players to play for Syracuse University. Some were way before our time, so that does make them hard to rank, but we did our best to rank them based on their stats and what has been written about them. If we missed someone you felt deserved to be on the list, or you think someone should have been ranked higher, make sure to let us know in the comments.

So without further ado, let’s continue the countdown with #30.
