Use local coverage on Syracuse sports

Where's the local coverage?


I would like to comment on a Feb. 18 story that The Gazette carried in the sports section on page B7.  The story was written by Christy Cabrera Chirinos of the Sun Sentinel, which is located in Coral Gables, Fla. The headline read as follows: “Syracuse hangs on against Florida State.” 

First of all, the game was played between Syracuse University and the University of Miami — not between Syracuse University and Florida State as the headline indicates.

Secondly, one would think that our local paper would provide an article of interest to followers of a high-profile, local college basketball team, rather than offer us a slanted, inaccurate coverage of our team. I would suggest in the future, use an article from a more local newspaper.
