Syracuse’s 101 vacated wins from the NCAA’s ruling last year will be spread across multiple years and include a Big East title and two full seasons, according to a report from

The Orange will have 23 wins cleared from 2005-06, which includes Syracuse’s memorable Big East tournament title run with Gerry McNamara as well as 2011-12 -- which was a 34-3 season with Fab Melo. New records will be reflected as 0-12 for the 2005-06 season and 0-3 for 2011-12.

Melo was out for five games during the 2011-12 season with eligibility issues.

Syracuse is will also vacate 15 wins from its 27-7 2004-05 season -- for a new record of 12-7 -- and 22 wins during a 24-11 2006-07 season for a new record of 2-11. As the story noted, it is unclear if Syracuse must vacate its 2005 Big East title.

The final season Syracuse will lose seven wins from 2010-11’s 27-8 campaign. That season will now be 20-8 in the record books.

It is unclear which particular wins that Syracuse has to vacate, if any, as it might just be updated as new season records with no changes to specific games.

The vacated wins will also changed Jim Boeheim’s status in the record books as he enters the 2016-17 with 884 wins.
