Cornell - Syracuse Preview

Syracuse students agree: what good are gorges if you can't see them?

The #7 Syracuse Orange enter this game at 6-0 coming off this weekend’s win in the Legends Tournament. Their foe inside the Carrier Dome? Instate rival Cornell. But don’t be fooled; this isn’t last year’s Big Red. No, sir. This isn’t a team that has any business making it to the Sweet 16 this year. They’ve lost a lot of size and experience from last year, and it shows on the court. I saw the Big Red live in action in their on-campus gym against St. Bonaventure on November 19. They lost to the Bonnies 56-54 by blowing something like a 12-point lead in the game’s final eight minutes. St. Bonaventure played them hard on defense pretty much the entire way, beat them on the boards, and made them shoot the ball from three. Cornell did have a couple of players able to shoot and hit the three, but it was just not enough to overcome the Bonaventure attack. I think this game play favors the Orange; a strong defensive effort, good rebounding, and a continued good shooting effort to carry over from the Georgia Tech game should spell victory for Syracuse. I’ll put the margin of victory at 12, and put the number of inappropriate gorge jokes I make right around 3.
