Local Basketball Talent Commits to Syracuse

Posted by Todd Kramer on November 20, 2008

Brandon Triche officially signed his letter of intent to play for head coach Jim Boeheim at Syracuse next season. Here’s a promo video Triche made with a buddy of his to show off some of his skills:

Triche, a 6-foot-4 guard from Jamesville-Dewiit High School, was named the 2008 New York Class A Player of the Year after leading the Red Rams to the Class A state and federation titles. He averaged 20.2 points, 7 assists and 6 rebounds last year for J-D. For more information on Triche, visit the SU Athletics website.

    Based on the first minute of their video, we should feel confident that SU will win several slam dunk competitions for the next few years.

    When I took a sports reporting class at Newhouse two years ago, I had to cover a Jamesville-DeWitt High School basketball game. Brandon Triche was on the sidelines, with an injury at the time. I can’t wait to see him play some ball! I always heard he was a really, really good player. I also heard that college recruits started paying attention to him in the eighth grade!!! From the video you posted, it looks like he’s going to do really well at SU. Thanks for this post!
