Cincinnati - Syracuse Preview

Syracuse students agree: A win would go a long way at this point.
A lot is at steak in this game. Whichever team wins is assured to finish .500 or better in the league. It would give Cincy a big win down the stretch, and it would give Syracuse 21 wins on the season. Cincy has won six out of their last ten, including wins against West Virginia and Georgetown. This is a team that should not be underestimated. They are helmed by Deonta Vaughn who averages 15.4ppg and 4.8apg, and shoots 34% from downtown. Earlier in the year I named him my Big East player of the week, because he can score like Donte Cunningham and really hurt your team’s chance of winning. This game will again come down to if Syracuse can find a balanced attack on offense, getting the ball to their big men for high percentage shots. That will obviously open up the shooting game quite nicely, such as against St. John’s. Syracuse will need to not play as fast and loose as they did in New York and really try to curtail the turnovers again. This is a sneakily good team and Syracuse needs a win to get that vaunted .500 mark in the league. Most people have us in, but until Selection Sunday nothing is a lock. A Cincinnati game hasn't been this important since Gerry McNamara's runner in 2006. I’m going with Syracuse however, by eight.
