One of the biggest first round games in any conference tournament takes place in the Barclays Center on Wednesday afternoon. The Miami Hurricanes take on the Syracuse Orange in a win that might be enough to push each team into the NCAA Tournament.
This is the second match up of the year between the two teams. Syracuse won the first game by a final of 70-55 on their home court.
The Miami Hurricanes aren’t talked about that much, but they are quietly having themselves a nice season. They come into this game with a 20-10 record and sit in 7th place in the ACC.
The Hurricanes are probably already in the tournament even if they lose this game but a win over the Orange would lock up a berth for sure.
It will be interesting to see how well they come out in this game. They have lost their last two games so they should be motivated to play well in this game.
To win this game the Hurricanes need to play good on the defensive end. They can not let Syracuse get going from outside early on or they could be bounced in the first round of the tournament.
The Syracuse Orange are one of the most debated teams going into this NCAA Tournament. No one really knows if they will make the tournament or miss it, but if they lose this game their bubble might burst.
The Orange come into this game with a record of 18-13 and finished in 7th place in the ACC. They are 2-1 in their last three games including wins over Georgia Tech and Duke.
The hardest part for the selection committee is going to evaluating the Orange and their good wins. All those wins have been at home. They haven’t had a big upset on the road and that might really hurt them come selection Sunday.
For the Orange to win this game they want to push the pace. The faster the pace this game is played at the better the chance they have to win.
