As the Syracuse Orange prepare to face the Duke Blue Devils at Cameron Indoor Stadium, we decided to take a look back at some of the most memorable moments since Syracuse joined the ACC. This will be the last time the Cameron Crazies get to see Michael William Krzyzewski take on his friend James Arthur Boeheim and we’ll see if the game can give us another unforgettable moment.
The Oranges are 2-4 in Cameron since joining the ACC and along the way we’ve had these moments:
Many believe this was the first appearance of the Jim Boeheim Jacket Toss, but Boeheim maintained impeccable sleeve control as he went ballistic on that charging call on CJ Fair.
Roberson rides and slams
Tyler Roberson raises and throws this one-handed lob from Michael Gbinije and suddenly Cameron got really quiet. I mean, just look at this screenshot to see where Roberson is when he catches that ball…..with his left hand!!!!
Sion driving Dolezaj flying
Zion Williamson had a big impact on the ACC in his only season at Duke. Perhaps no impact was greater than the one it made on Marek Dolezaj on this 2019 piece. The collision was so violent that www.syracuse.com decided to take a deeper look at the physics involved. We hope Marek got some extra slices after this game.
The Hughes Uprising
During that same 2019 game, Elijah Hughes made a harmless pass in bounds late in the first half. After fumbling it towards the sideline, Hughes delivered a three-quarter bomb straight through the back of the net. Watch the replays and tell us who had your favorite reaction? Was it Oshae Brissett just kind of standing up then running? How about Tyus Battle who starts running for someone to celebrate with and realizes Hughes is behind him? Or do the stunned fools stand there with their mouths hanging open, wondering what just happened?
Before even posting the comment on John Gillon’s shot remember it was in the Dome. These moments are unique to Cameron so we have not forgotten that one. Will we have a new moment to add to this list on Saturday? Early odds would have Boeheim ejected as favorites, but we may be shocked once again before Coach K retires.
