SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Basketball season in Syracuse is right around the corner.
Friday night, more than 1,000 Syracuse Basketball fans made their way to the Dome to get a first look at this year’s men’s team.
“I feel like I died and went to basketball heaven. I love this town, I love our men’s and women’s team and it’s the greatest show on earth,” said Linda Lerch, a self-proclaimed SU superfan.
Linda wanted to see if the team can “really shoot the three.”
