Billy Drew was a reserve swingman for Syracuse for two seasons. Drew was a very accurate perimeter shooting player, with some good height, and modest foot speed.

Drew started his collegiate career at Notre Dame and transferred to Syracuse after his sophomore year because of a lack of playing time. Drew would see more playing time at Syracuse, but not signficant as the Orangemen had a very deep squad. He would be part of the rotation of players used by coach Jim Boeheim to spell his starters, and Drew would average 5.0 points a game at Syracuse.

In January of his junior season, Drew came off the bench against Temple, and quickly hit four baskets and made two free throws to spark Syracuse to a victory over Temple. Later that season, he would have some clutch baskets against Tennessee in the NCAA tournament, including five in overtime, to help the Orangemen advance.
