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.
