Syracuse basketball players dabbled at curling during Monday’s practice

Undefeated Syracuse isn't just college basketball's top-ranked team. The Orange are pretty good at curling too.

Inspired by the start of the Winter Olympics in Sochi a few days ago, a handful of Syracuse players spent time at Monday's practice honing their skills the same way the world's best curlers surely once did – with a basketball and broom. Syracuse assistant coach Nick Resavy posted the above video of C.J. Fair, Jerami Grant and BJ Johnson showcasing their unusual curling technique.

Hopefully the Orange didn't spend too much of practice on curling since they have a big road test on the way Wednesday at Pittsburgh. Once basketball season is over, however, perhaps Syracuse will get a crack at these guys as well.
