Syracuse has been picked to finish fifth in the Atlantic Coast Conference in the preseason conference media poll released at ACC Media Day on Wednesday. Duke took the top spot with 85 first-place votes.
The Orange is coming off a disappointing regular season that saw the team finish 19-12 and 10th in the ACC, but a magical postseason that saw Syracuse reach the Final Four. SU was 9-9 in conference play last season and lost its first game of the ACC tournament to Pittsburgh.
