Syracuse Basketball 2010-2019  
Season Results
Team Record 252-98 .720 2 Final Fours
Post Season 8 NCAA, 1 NIT
The team turned Jim Boeheim's zone defense into one of the most feared defenses in the country, with long armed quick players on the team. The offense revolved around defensive turnovers, and strong guard play.
Player of the Decade
Tyus Battle, 2017-2019. Battle was a terrific shooting guard, who was great on breaking down defenders on isolation plays, and had an outstanding drop back mid-range jump shot. He helped the Orange maintain success during the probation years later in the decade.
Best Individual Season
Wesley Johnson, 2009-10. A season with statistics downplayed by his unselfish play, Johnson led the team in scoring and rebounding, while displaying a great inside/outside game.
Best Team
2011-12. The team set a school record for wins with 34, going 34-3, won the Big East Regular Season title by three games, reached #1 in the polls and was a #1 seed in the NCAA tournament. They would lose in the Elite Eight. A close second was the 2009-2010 squad that went 30-5, also reaching #1 in the polls and earning a #1 seed in the NCAA tournament. A mention needs to be made to the 2012-2013 team which became the fifth Syracuse team to reach the Final Four, with a 30-10 record.

Honorable Mentions Andy Rautins, Kris Joseph, Dion Waiters, C.J.Fair, Scoop Jardine
Best Shooter
Andy Rautins. Rautins had great range, and often faced special defensive coverage. Andrew White gets some serious consideration for being prolific and shooting at a high percentage.
Fan Favorite C.J. Fair . A hustling player with steady shooting, and a stats stuffing game. Michael Gbinije gets some serious consideration as a multi-faceted player who consistently improved each year.
Most Exciting Player Wesley Johnson. Fantastic leaping ability and spectacular dunking ability. Close second is Dion Waiters with his explosiveness to the hoop.
Best Defensive Player: Rick Jackson Outstanding in the backline of the zone defense. Fab Melo was the best shot blocker of the decade.
