Larry O'Neill was a reserve center for Syracuse basketball for two seasons. He was a tall lanky center whose career was hampered by injury.

O'Neill was a backup to senior All American Danny Schayes his freshman year, and as a result saw little playing time. O'Neill would suffer a serious injury to his left wrist in a non-basketball related injury the following summer, and would miss the entire 1981-1982 campaign. When O'Neill rejoined the team in 1982, he was well down the depth chart, and recovering from his injury was difficult.

O'Neill would leave the team in September of 1983 to focus on academics. He would graduate from Syracuse University in 1984 with a degree in Speech Communications.
