Fresh off of Syracuse's 63-60 Sweet-16 victory over Gonzaga, Trevor Cooney is starting to change his legacy. His status/career has been often debated amongst Orange fans. Through three NCAA Tournament games, his contributes cannot be discounted.
Cooney is averaging 13.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 0.7 steals per game while shooting 45% from the floor and 54% from beyond the three-point arc. His impact on Syracuse's improbable run to the Elite Eight caught the attention of one notable Syracuse alum. That would be Joe Biden, the Vice President of the United States.
"From one Delaware Cuse man to another, Trevor Cooney is all heart; pure Orange. Great game last night." Biden tweeted.
Safe to say V.P. Biden will be watching when Syracuse faces Virginia on Sunday at 6:09pm Eastern with a trip to the Final Four on the line.
