“Syracuse, N.Y. — Jonny Flynn, the No. 6 pick in the 2009 NBA draft, is headed to a pro team in China, according to his high school coach.
Sal Constantino, the head coach at Niagara Falls High School, said Friday that Flynn, who played at Syracuse University from 2007 to 2009, has signed to play for the Sichuan Blue Whales in China’s professional basketball league. Flynn’s decision to head to China was first reported on twitter by @HomeBaseBuffalo.”
As Central New York prepares for Obama’s visit today, we’ve taken a look back to see how “Barackatology” has treated Syracuse basketball.
In others years, Obama overestimated how far the Orange would go. In 2012, he got it just right.
The first two longest-tenured coaches are no surprise. But how about Greg Kampe, Rick Byrd and Fang Mitchell? Great work here:
“And now, the promised list, from 1 (Boeheim) to 351 (Stetson’s Corey Williams, at least for a little while but probably not for long):
1. April 3 Jim Boeheim, Syracuse
2. March 18 Mike Krzyzewski, Duke
3. Greg Kampe, Oakland
4. April Rick Byrd, Belmont
5. May 7 Fang Mitchell, Coppin State”
