Tonight, the hospital’s landmark clock tower will glow against the Syracuse skyline in bright orange, and on Friday, employees have been invited to show their ‘Cuse spirit by wearing S.U. apparel.
In an article on Syracuse.com today, Syracuse guard Dion Waiters summed up the Orange’s challenge ahead this way: “Our coaches believed in us. We believed in ourselves. We know we can beat anybody and we can lose to anybody. We just have to believe in ourselves and play Syracuse basketball.”
Well, guys, we believe in you and look forward to great Syracuse basketball and, of course, a win on Friday!
