Syracuse students agree: The last non-conf. game can't be a letdown.
Syracuse faces their final non-conference foe before the start of the Big East. Hanging onto #1 and having a day off, Syracuse looks to earn another statement win before taking on old foes. Tulane completes the football/basketball combo pack of this season. Let's take a look.
Syracuse is a bigger, more talented team. Tulane has a lofty 11-1 record on the season so far. Their only loss is on the road at Wofford. Their most impressive win is a two point victory over Navy at Navy. Tulane simply does not play on the road. Freshman Ricky Tarrant can shoot the ball, but Syracuse will be bigger and rebound better. And chances are while Tarrant will get some open looks and knock down a few, it should go like Tuesday's game. Sorry it's quick, but tip is in 30 minutes and I'm picking the Orange by 28.
Syracuse will be shown on TWCS, SNY, and ESPN 3. Enjoy the show. I'm not in the Dome but I'll be out watching it with enjoyable people. Watch if you can.
