Roster changes[edit]

Syracuse lost two major contributors to graduation, combo guard Brandon Triche and small forward James Southerland. In addition, point guard Michael Carter-Williams left for the NBA.

Syracuse added five incoming freshmen and swingman Michael Gbinije became eligible after sitting out the 2012-13 season because of NCAA transfer rules.
