Syracuse and Ohio State have only ever met seven times. Ohio Stat leads the all-time series, 5–2, including the last two wins, each of which knocked Syracuse out of the NCAA Tournament (Elite Eight in 2012, 2007).
The Orange stopped a two-game losing streak a week ago with a blowout win over Colgate, 77–56. Prior, Syracuse lost to Connecticut and Oregon, each time on a neutral floor, though Madison Square Garden is a second home for the Orange.
Starting center Paschal Chukwu has a strained groin and is hopeful he’ll play this game. It’s a question, though. He’ll be important in the middle of the zone to rebound and put pressure on Kaleb Wesson, Ohio State’s big man and leading scorer.
Ohio State Buckeyes
The NCAA debuted its new NCAA Evaluation Tool (NET) this week, the new statistic that’s set to replace RPI. Ohio State topped the rankings with its 6–0 record that includes road wins over Creighton and Cincinnati.
Sophomore forward Kaleb Wesson is the guy Syracuse will have to deny on the inside. He’s 6’9″ 270 lbs. and adept at catching, putting it on the floor and scoring in a variety of ways. He’ll draw attention and kick it out for open threes.
Ohio State shot just fifteen percent from outside in a win against Samford, which also employs the 2-3 zone. Dealing with Syracuse’s athletes is a different story. A lot will come down to how well the Buckeyes stroke from three.
