Syracuse got the big win over Duke recently but with 12 losses they can’t be safe.
Louisville is coming off a loss to UNC. They are looking for a bounce back.
This will be an interesting contrast to see if the Cards can wear out a Syracuse team that does not have much depth.
The Orange made a nice run last year but how good is this year’s team? And will they have anything left in the tank to attempt another run?
Tyler Lydon has played every minute of the last 10 games for the Orange. That zone helps him but for a guy who block shots and rebounds the way he does you have to wonder how long he can keep it up. There were even two overtimes in there.
Andrew White III, the team’s leading scorer has played every minute of the last nine games. He only scored 7 points in the win over Duke so maybe it is finally catching up to him.
Like White, John Gillon is also a transfer. I think he was supposed to provide depth but on many nights he is not coming off the floor.
Lots of people say Syracuse is off the bubble but a 13th loss in the regular season is not very common on tourney resumes.
Back to back wins against ranked teams would definitely make a statement though. They need to do damage now because the everyday format of the ACC Tournament is not ideal for them.
This is the second time these teams have played in just a couple of weeks. The first game went to OT at the Carrier Dome with the Cardinals winning it.
It was a road game but the Cards did not really show up at UNC. Donovan Mitchell played like a POY candidate with 21 points but nobody else score more than 9. Unreliable scoring has been a challenge all season for this group. They also got hammered on the boards in that one.
Deng Adel has to be better for Louisville to be considered a contender. He needs to be a consistent second option after Mitchell or this team is toast.
Louisville gets a good opponent to try and get well offensively against because they know exactly how the Orange are going to play. Still they have to make some shots.
