Eddie Goldberg was an outstanding guard for Syracuse in the late 1950’s, during a time when the talent level on the team was declining. He was a fast player and a consistent scorer, starting all three years. He was the second leading scorer each of his three seasons, and was a solid free throw shooter, and a tremendous Ed Goldbergperimeter shooter.

Goldberg was the leading scorer on the Syracuse Freshman basketball team. In a freshman game, he set an Archbold Gymnasium scoring record with 44 points against Cornell (Feb 23, 1957).

Goldberg was injury prone, and missed playing time all three seasons. As a sophomore he injured the ligaments in the Penn State game, and missed the last four games of the season. Nevertheless, he was named an honorable mention All-American his sophomore and senior seasons. He scored 23 points in his first varsity game, and eight times scored more than tweny this sophomore year. He hit a career high 30 against Fordham that year.

He would earn his law degree in 1963 and become an attorney.
