Syracuse - DePaul Preview

Syracuse students agree: We lose, we drink bleach.
DePaul is a team that I have had the fortune (read: misfortune) of actually seeing in person before we play them. In the SEC/Big East Invitational they played Mississippi State before the Syracuse v. Florida affair in Tampa. They looked awful then, when they still had Jerry Wainwright at the helm. They look awful now. Granted that is compared to other Big East schools (except maybe Rutgers), but even so they Play in the Big East and compared to Syracuse, Villanova, and other top Big East schools they are bad. Syracuse averages 83.5ppg and is the best shooting team in the country. It also leads the Big East in every statistical category. DePaul averages 59.7ppg and has the rare distinction of actually allowing more points then they score, with 65ppg. They have two good players in G Will Walker (16.1ppg) and F-C Mac Koshwal (14ppg, 10.5rpg). Walker also shoots 31.6% from behind the arc. This team will need an absolute miracle to even remotely keep up with Syracuse both inside the paint and in shooting. This has every indication that this will be a bloodbath. This one should truly be over by the under 4 of the first half, with a possible Syracuse lull in the middle of the second half, only to finish strong. Look for #4 Syracuse to roll on DePaul by 26.
