Rutgers - Syracuse Preview

Syracuse students agree: Time to see Jim Boeheim earn #903.
Rutgers is on a five game win streak, but three of the five of those games were won without their head coach on the sideline. Mike Rice, after sitting out three games, is back and facing a tough test in Syracuse. The Scarlet Knights haven't won in the series since 2003 and haven't won in Syracuse in 15 visits. They are 1-22 lifetime in the Carrier Dome. Rutgers uses a smaller, three guard lineup. Eli Carter and Myles Mack are averaging 16.9 and 14.5 points respectively. Miles Mack doesn't shoot that many long balls, but when he does they usually go in. Syracuse could find themselves in trouble if Rutgers' shooters get hot. Syracuse needs to pound the paint and get in transition. Syracuse should be up to the task, but this one will be a little stressful for Orange fans I fear. Still, Boeheim should pass Bobby Knight for sole possession of second on the all time wins list with the Orange winning by 8. The game is available on TWCS / SNY / ESPN 3.
