Maine - Syracuse Preview

Syracuse students agree: We just want to play Florida already.
In the America East basketball conference (not the worst conference in the world, but certainly not the Big East), Maine is picked to finish eighth out of nine. Only above Binghamton University, who as you know has a boatload of problems. Maine only averages 65.0ppg, while SU is up around 88.9. Their leading scorer is Gerald McLemore, a guard who only averages 14 points a game. While he does average around 40% from long range, this scoring threat will be much like Colgate; not nearly enough. Their leading rebounder is forward Sean McNally (is everyone Irish on this team?) which means that their lineup is small and will again not be able to handle Arinze Onuaku and Rick Jackson on the inside, nor will they be able to stop the likes of Wes Johnson or probably even Brandon Triche driving. Is it possible this team is whiter and shorter than Colgate? I regress… this will be a big day for the Orange inside, if they can manage to get there because they will probably have some tempting open looks from outside. I’m guessing that Maine has seen some film on the 2-3 zone, but will be powerless in trying to penetrate it, much like every other team of Maine’s caliber we have seen so far this season. Look for another big Syracuse win in the non-conference season. #7/8 Syracuse over Maine by 24.
