C.J. Fair is a forward for the Syracuse University basketball team.

CJ FairFair would be part of the regular rotation of players for his entire freshman season. He provided a nice change of pace for the Orange with his left handed shooting and driving to the hoop. He made most of his playing time, often grabbing a key rebound or making a nice tip in shot when needed. Fair was easily recognizable by the fans for the bright orange headband he always wore.

Fair was still a sixth man his sophomore season, but really only in title, as he usually entered the game after two or three minutes to replace Rakeem Christmas, and he played the second most minutes on the team for the season, behind only Kris Joseph. Fair had improved his game with a mid range jump shot, and was counted on to do a lot of the rebounding.

He had many of his big games against big game opponents, including strong efforts against Florida, UConn and Louisville. Fair would start struggling with his shooting as the regular season ended, and was having difficulty making any baskets in the Big East Tournament and early in the NCAA tournament. He would break out of it with good games against Wisconsin and Ohio State as the NCAA tournament ended for Syracuse.

Fair moved into the starting lineup his junior season and did not disappoint anyone. He would lead the team in scoring and rebounding, and prove to be the most consistent player over the course of the season. He had developed a decent three point shot that he used in the appropriate situations, and made nearly 47% of his attempts. Fair would finish the season with an impressive 22 point effort in the Final Four loss to Michigan.
