Marquette - Syracuse Preview

Syracuse students agree: It's good to be back and see them in person.
#5 Syracuse is back in the Carrier Dome after a successful three game road stand that resulted in three more wins, one of which against a top ten team. After some restful days and the start of a new semester, the students are ready to see their team in action again. And this team is hot and will have a good match up. Syracuse is the top shooting team in the country and Marquette is the best three point shooting team in the country. In case you live in a cave you know that Syracuse runs a 2-3 Zone defense, and that begs teams to shoot the long ball over it in lieu of trying to penetrate to the hoop. F Lazar Hayward (18.5ppg, 7.4rpg) is the star of the team and he is legitimate. He is a senior that is Big East tested and has been clutch in the past. He also shoots 32.2% from long range which helps as well. However Syracuse is outstanding on both ends of the court, and in transition. Coupling the fact that Syracuse outscores Marquette, and they juse lost to DePaul, Syracuse has to be the big time favorite right? I think so. Syracuse should win this one, I'll say by 19.

    I think this game will be alot closer than you think Mr. Magician! Although the Orange have superior talent , just the fact that Marquette lost to Depaul!!! will motivate them beyond belief. Orange 79-70. Mortsports!

    Haha quite alright. Not buying the extra motivation though. It didn't help Notre Dame and Harangody dropped 31 on us.
