Syracuse has been fun to watch, if you like boring basketball. Still they advance to take on a familiar foe.
That would be fellow ACC school Duke, who has advanced without breaking much of a sweat. Will familiarity be a benefit or a hindrance in this one?
Syracuse bagged another one as they took down Michigan State to advance. A third straight upset win for the undermanned Orange.
Once again Syracuse was able to set the pace. When they do they can be in the game and find ways to win it late. Especially when better teams squeeze the ball too hard.
It was the usual suspects with Frank Howard, Tyus Battle and Oshae Brissett scoring all but 10 of the Orange’s points. Even with Howard fouling out.
When they last met Syracuse did a good job on the pace of the game but only scored 44 points in a 16 point loss. Are they better now?
Duke Blue Devils
As it turns out Duke was one of just a couple of top seeds that breezed through the first weekend. They might be hitting their stride.
I would have through that Rhode Island would have given them more of a game but they couldn’t make a shot and looked outclassed.
Duke had great balance with all five starters scoring in double-figures against the Rams. Marvin Bagley led with 22 points and 9 rebounds.
Grayson Allen could still be a little more assertive but we might be slitting hairs. He made three of his four three point attempts and didn’t need to force things.
