Syracuse Social Media Report 6.0

We took a one-week hiatus due to finals week. So we pick up where we left off, with the potential for some big gains in followership. Since our last report, Jim Boeheim earned his 900th career win, the Orange suffered its first loss, and some big-time games were shown on ESPN.

Carter-Williams has been called the best point guard in the country by multiple ESPN commentators this week. His assist numbers continue to be monstrous. But he was in the news for another reason last week after allegedly being caught shoplifting from Lord and Taylor, which also could have boosted his follower count. At this rate, MCW will be passing Christmas any week now.
