Cincinnati - Syracuse Preview

Syracuse students agree: Can't lose at home after beating #1 on the road.
Syracuse has a short turnaround from beating the #1 team in the nation in Louisville. The good news is that Cincinnati has an even shorter one after beating Marquette in overtime yesterday as well. That game tipped at 7:00pm. Now Syracuse returns to the comfy confines of the Carrier Dome to take on Cincinnati, a very good team that just took down #25 and has won all of their road Big East games so far. Granted two of them were Rutgers and DePaul, but hey it's the Big East. Crazy things happen. Sean Kilpatrick is coming off a career high 36 points in the overtime win, including the game winner at the end of overtime. He's a monster for Cincy, averaging 18.3ppg. Cincinnati will try and shoot over the zone, as well as feed the bigs down in the paint to get Syracuse's defenders in foul trouble early and often. I think this game is a toss up with the talent on the court. But I like Syracuse at home in front of a big crowd. I'm picking the Orange by six. This game is on nationally on ESPN at 3:30pm.
