There is something comforting about seeing two old school Big East teams go at it, especially at Madison Square Garden. What is more classic than that.
This season Syracuse definitely has a much better outlook, however, UConn has a backcourt that has a lot of potential and can keep them in a lot of games.
The Orange have a formula and it works. Usually that means relying on a few key players and playing a style that is far from sexy but how do you argue with it.
Ty Battle almost never leaves the court and has to be considered a legit player of the year candidate if the Orange have a strong regular season. He is both good and reliable.
Oshae Brissett is another player who is ever present for the Orange. He can score and rebound and he is very comfortable in the system in his second season at Syracuse.
Those two are a nice nucleus but there are other experienced players that contribute too. Rare transfer Elijah Hughes also is contributing early and gives them athleticism.
Dan Hurley had success at Rhode Island and the Huskies are looking for him to get the program back among the elite and perhaps to another title.
Per the intro UConn has some good guards, the best of whom is Jalen Adams who has a high ceiling of AAC player of the year of higher. He can be that good.
Christian Vital is another guard who can score and is a monster on the glass. He is on’t 6’2″ but he is probably the team’s best rebounder.
The ceiling for this team will be determined by how much they can get from their guys up front. There are no real established players there, offensively or defensively which is going to make this matchup tough.

Syracuse is an easy favourite to make in this one, even in a neutral site environment like MSG.
I like the environment to draw out a good game from both sides. Though the shooting might not be great.
