Nobody expected this kind of matchup in the Round of 32.
The MTSU Blue Raiders meet with the Syracuse Orange on Sunday as both teams pulled off upsets in their Round of 64 games.
MTSU Blue Raiders
There are a very select few who had the Blue Raiders playing in this game.
Middle Tennessee State pulled off an epic upset in the first round as they knocked off Michigan State, sending shock waves through the college basketball universe.
After racing out to a 15-2 start, MTSU held off Michigan State throughout. There were many occasions where it looked like things would fall off track, but they remained poised and continued to hit their 3’s to lead them over the Spartans.
MTSU now faces a Syracuse team that will be equally as tough defensively. It’ll come down to the three balls for MTSU. They got hot early and never tapered off throughout the entire game against Michigan State. Nobody is afraid to hoist, but they’ll certainly live or die by the three ball, making it the game changer here.
The Orange come in off a blowout win over Dayton in the round of 64, but things weren’t as easy as they made it seem.
Syracuse led by just 2 at the break, but behind their pressure defense, they pulled away in the 2nd half. Syracuse held Dayton to just 23 points in the 2nd half, as they continued to force turnovers and shut down the Dayton shooters.
Expecting to play Michigan State here, the Orange will now have to adapt to the MTSU shooting. The Blue Raiders don’t have much of an inside presence, but this team isn’t shy about shooting the ball, which will cause a lot of fits for the Orange here.
The Cuse defense has allowed just 65.3 points per game on the season.
CBB Betting Trends:
