MBB : Joseph joins 1,000-point club; freshman Cooney to redshirt

first_img Comments Kris Joseph made it a goal for himself when he was in high school. Whatever college he went to, he wanted to score 1,000 points. To him, the mark signified being part of an elite group of players.On Monday, Joseph joined that group.The senior small forward needed four points to reach 1,000 for his career heading into Syracuse’s 92-56 win over Manhattan. He got three of them on a triple from the left corner just more than two minutes into the game. And that last point he needed to break 1,000 came on another 3-pointer from the left wing.‘Just growing up, I always told myself whatever college I go to, I want to be a part of that club,’ Joseph said. ‘I think it’s an elite club to be a part of, and I’m fortunate enough that I was able to do it here at Syracuse University.’But Joseph didn’t stop there. That second 3-pointer triggered a stretch in which he scored eight points in just more than a minute. On SU’s next possession, he buried another long-range dagger from almost the exact same spot on the floor, forcing Manhattan to take a timeout.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAnd on the ensuing Jaspers possession after the stoppage, the Orange senior got a run-out and converted a two-handed slam.‘I was feeling it,’ Joseph said. ‘That was it. I shot with the big ball I’m back to my routine shooting with the big ball before the game starts in my little warm-up. I was just feeling hot. I knew I was four points away from 1,000. I was just trying to get them as quickly as possible.’Joseph finished the game with 15 points and seven rebounds.After the game, Joseph looked back on the moment when the public address announcer told the Carrier Dome crowd Joseph had reached the 1,000-point mark. He said he remembered as a freshman when Paul Harris reached 1,000 points and also when Rick Jackson did it last year.And he knew he wanted that special moment of his own.‘It was a great feeling,’ Joseph said. ‘I remember hearing it for Paul Harris. I remember how happy he was. And I remember them doing it for Rick. I wanted it for myself, so it was a great feeling.’Freshman Cooney redshirtedWith his hands on his backpack straps, Trevor Cooney gave a slight shrug of the shoulders before he answered. The saddened look on his face told the story, and there’s nothing he can do at this point.‘It’s disappointing, obviously, because you come here to college to play,’ Cooney said. ‘But there’s four really, really good guards in front of me and older guys. All I can do is take this year to get better and learn from those guys.’Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim announced Cooney will redshirt this year, following Monday’s win over Manhattan. He stressed this situation had nothing to do with Cooney’s readiness or playing ability, but rather the logjam in front of him at both of the guard positions.Cooney enters the 2011-12 season as the fifth guard in the SU rotation, and Boeheim felt playing only a couple of minutes a game, if at all, wasn’t the best option for the freshman.‘Sometimes a guy does redshirt because he’s hurt, but this is different,’ Boeheim said. ‘Usually, it’s because they’re just not good enough to play yet, and that’s not the case. … When you have four guards ahead of him, he’s not going to play a significant amount of time.’Boeheim mentioned that former players Andy Rautins and Lazarus Sims, among others, redshirted as freshmen and went on to become team leaders and great players as fifth-year seniors. He feels that Cooney, known for now primarily as a shooter, has a chance to become that same type of player.Cooney did see the court in both of SU’s exhibition games. He had seven points on 3-of-4 shooting against Cal State-Los Angeles and three points against St. Rose.Though disheartened, Cooney said it feels good to know Boeheim has confidence in his future within the program.‘That just shows how much trust he has in me, and it’s cool to hear him say things like that,’ Cooney said.zjbrown@syr.edumjcohe02@syr.edu Published on November 14, 2011 at 12:00 pmcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
