Bobby Manning and James Szuba wrap their trip to Syracuse's media day and basketball scrimmage. What happened to the days of Jadakiss, the stage and Seth Greenburg? SU couldn't get the nets right for the skills competition, scratched the dunk contest and only a small crowd showed up to watch the team.

That stuck out most from the first impression. This is all new, fresh, albeit sloppy. Jalen Carey looked in control, Brycen Goodine annihilated the three-point contest and Buddy Boeheim, Joe Girard dueled at the end of the scrimmage.

Plus, the biggest surprises from media day interviews. Could there be a surprise PG starter?
