Syracuse students agree: 3 non-conf. games in a week is no problem.
Honestly this game is going to be pretty similar to Long Beach State. Monmouth is a small team and it will be a miracle for them to outrebound Syracuse in this one. That means a lot of second chance buckets in the paint for Syracuse, and not many second chance opportunities for Monmouth. While Andrew Nicholas has led Monmouth in scoring, he will have trouble penetrating the zone defense and getting easy looks in the paint. He will shot from the outside, but the zone will extend to cover him obviously so he will be a little more limited. While Monmouth will take more threes than they probably usually do, they won't hit that many. Oh and hey, their head coach is suspended for this game for criticizing officials in their last game. mean, can we just play Big East games already? Orange are gonna roll by 35. This game is available locally on TWCS or SNY and available online at ESPN 3.
