Published on December 23, 2019 at 9:13 am Facebook Twitter Google+ The Daily Orange Sports staff has always worked to keep you up-do-date on the latest Syracuse sports news, and last fall was no different.

Here is a list of the 10 most newsworthy sports stories of fall 2019: Elizabeth Billman | Asst. Photo EditorSyracuse men’s basketball makes statement with #NotAgainSu warm-upsAs protests continued following a string of race and bias-related incidents on and around campus, the men’s basketball team decided they wouldn’t stay on the sidelines. The team did this as Otto’s Army, Syracuse’s official student section organization, decided to boycott the game, urging students to go to The Barnes Center at the Arch instead.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThroughout the protest, Syracuse athletes used their platforms to address the hate in the community. Their warm-up shirts are just one high-profile example. Max Freund | Staff PhotographerSyracuse fires defensive coordinator Brian WardA day after the Orange allowed 496 rushing yards, five rushing touchdowns, three passing touchdowns and 58 total points to a Boston College team that would finish just 6-6, head coach Dino Babers decided it was time for change. The casualty was defensive coordinator and linebackers coach Brian Ward. Ward’s third season with Syracuse was cut three games short amidst a disappointing 3-6 season.“I felt a change needed to be made at this time to give us the best opportunity for success moving forward,” Babers said following Ward’s firing.Max Freund | Staff PhotographerSyracuse has lowest scoring game in 74 years against No. 11 VirginiaThe optimism of a new season.

In the season-opening Syracuse loss, the Orange shot 26.3% from the field on their way to the lowest scoring Syracuse performance in 74 years.Elizabeth Billman | Asst.

Parker (D-NY) wrote a bill that would equally compensate all college athletes in the state based on an annual revenue sharing model. Parker explained his proposal to The Daily Orange.Corey Henry | Photo EditorJim Boeheim clarifies earlier statement, answers questions at Barnes Center sit-inBefore the men’s basketball team decided to wear #NotAgainSU warm-up shirts, showing solidarity with the student-led protests, head coach Jim Boeheim addressed the ongoing situation and sided with Chancellor Kent Syverud, which didn’t sit well with protestors. “I need to know what I said,” Boeheim told the crowd at the Barnes Center. “I don’t understand what I said.”Boeheim would clear up his statement to protestors at The Barnes Center at the Arch. The students refused his offering of pizza and largely dismissed his retraction.Max Freund | Staff Photographer4-star combo guard Kadary Richmond commits to SyracuseSyracuse’s 2020 recruiting class expanded to two when four-star combo guard Kadary Richmond committed to the Orange on Oct. 28.
