08:16 AM ET 07.15 | Jared Sullinger isn't the only notable player cutting some weight this offseason. Syracuse University basketball fans will see less of Brandon Triche and Scoop Jardine next season. Quite literally. Both of SU's starting guards have shed weight this summer in an effort to streamline their bodies to faster, more efficient basketball machines. Triche estimates he's lost about 15 pounds from his playing peak last season; Jardine said he's lost seven pounds and plans to eliminate five more. "We're big guards, but we want to get our weight down so we can be quicker and also play longer," Jardine said. "We gonna load a lot of minutes this year, me and Brandon, so I just want to be in shape and be able to play longer."
