Syracuse Retires Carmelo Anthony’s Jersey In Halftime Ceremony (Video)

Carmelo Anthony will always be the king of Syracuse for the amazing run he took the Cuse on during the NCAA tournament in 2003.

Melo as a freshman, led the Orange to their first national title when they defeated Kansas.  Fast forward 10 years and Syracuse hung up the #15 in the Carrier Dome rafters today during halftime of their final Big East meeting ever against the Georgetown Hoyas.

A sellout crowd of 35,012, the largest to see a college basketball game in an on-campus arena, watched a large replica of Anthony’s jersey get unveiled in the rafters.

The New York Knicks star was presented a framed jersey at center court and loud rousing ovation.


Carmelo’s wife LaLa was also in attendance cheering him on.
