The Orange are good, how good I am not sure but more than good enough to win on the road against almost anyone…see Duke.
Pittsburgh is night and day from a year ago. They are not likely to make to the Big Dance but a postseason berth is possible if they finish strong.
Syracuse is 6-2 in ACC play and sitting in second place. They won at Duke a couple of weeks ago so this team win anywhere.
Using their signature zone defense they are able to get away with playing few players and playing great defense. Look for that to continue.
Ty Battle is the top scorer on the team at 18ppg. His numbers would probably be more efficient if he could get more rest. He is part of their strong core.
Transfer Elijah Hughes has been better than expected. He averaged 7ppg at East Carolina but has doubled that with the Orange. His length and athleticism play well for them too. .
The Panthers just weren’t competitive last season. They are not threatening the top of the conference but they already have more wins than a year ago.
Maybe best of all they have become tough to play against again. They are only giving up 68ppg on defense. That is a good base to build on.
Xavier Johnson is averaging 16ppg as a freshman and just scored a season high 30 points against Clemson. He has been pretty consistent, in double figures in all games but two.
Trey McGowens is another first year player and he is averaging 13ppg. As these two continue to develop they can creep up the conference standings in future years.
