Syracuse students agree: It's great to be back in the Dome.
Syracuse just got off a major test against Arkansas and now they settle into the Carrier Dome for a stretch of home games until they start the conference season. And now they welcome back old friend Rob Murphy and the Eastern Michigan Eagles. Da'Shonte Riley also makes a return engagement and he can rebound. Daylen Harrison is the leading scorer for the Eagles as well. This team plays a lot of 2-3 zone and Syracuse's ability to run a zone offense will be key in this game. MCW dishing out more assists than any other guard in the nation and James Southerland is red hot. If this game becomes a fast game, it will most assuredly favor the Orange. EMU can't hang with the Orange when they are running. This game will be fun to see Syracuse play against their famous defense, but EMU is not as long and every player that will flash to the center of the paint can shoot a jump shot. Syracuse will roll in this game. Syracuse won 84 to 48 last season. While it won't be that close, Syracuse will win this one by 24. This game will be on national TV on ESPN U at 7:00pm.
