William & Mary - Syracuse Preview

Syracuse students agree: neither William nor Mary is good at hoops

This Sunday at 2:00pm, after a magical transformation of the Dome from full field football to the basketball setup, the Syracuse Orangemen take on the William & Mary Tribe. I assume that name is more racist than anything Syracuse ever called itself. Nonetheless, this is a University with a lot of history (2nd oldest institution of higher learning in the US, to Harvard). But for a school that touts Secretary of Defense Robert Gates among its notable alumni, this basketball team doesn't seem to know much about defense. In games this season against Virginia and Richmond, the Tribe surrendered 76 and 73 points, respectively. Conversely, they themselves only scored 52 and 49, respectively. Is this the breath of fresh air Syracuse needs? Let's hope so. Notable players to watch on W&M include Marcus Kitts, who seems to be their scoring and rebounding "machine," Quinn McDowell, and Kyle Gaillard. W&M have shot horribly from the floor, and seem to be lost in their first two games, which obviously ended in losses. Granted, they were playing against two schools with good basketball reputations, but still. I think this is the game that Syracuse decides to play the way we all expected them to play, especially with a whole four+ days to rest and prepare. Look for Syracuse to win by 19.
