Jim Boeheim said today his Syracuse team will be “ready to play” next week if the Orange is permitted to host its season-opener against Bryant.
“We’ll be ready to play next Friday,” he said in a phone conversation. “Our players are fine. They’re in great shape.”
SU’s men’s program has been on pause since last Sunday when Boeheim revealed he tested positive for Covid-19 and the university announced another person in the program also tested positive.
The Orange has not practiced all week. Players are in quarantine. SU’s season-opener is scheduled for Nov. 27 in the Carrier Dome.
