George Washington - Syracuse Preview

Syracuse students agree: We all thought GW was in the Colonial Athletic League.
Syracuse on paper is a much deeper, more talented team than George Washington. But George Washington will surprise Syracuse in terms of how good at shooting the ball from outside of the arc they are. Far more consistent than Marshall, Syracuse will have to account more for the shooters of GW in the zone. At least Syracuse has had a lot of practice rotating to cover shooters in the zone. The match up of the game will be Syracuse's offense versus the GW defense. GW will use MANTOMAN, 1-3-1, and 2-3 defenses. If Syracuse finds themselves in a scoring drought, Syracuse will be in trouble in this game. Syracuse has seen the 1-3-1 defense before when they played Coach Beilein first at West Virginia and now at Michigan, and they saw a bit of zone earlier this season. However, if Syracuse settles for less than ideal jump shots, Syracuse could be in a situation where they are not scoring but GW is. Syracuse's offense, despite the end of the Marshall game, has been solid this season. I'm picking Syracuse over GW by 14.
This game is on TWCS and SNY starting at 7:00pm this evening. Because of that, TWCS and SNY will carry the usual postgame coverage which is always entertaining. Enjoy your weekend. We'll wrap it all up next week. No football anymore, which is a good thing right now.
