Syracuse - Louisville Preview

Syracuse students agree: It's tough to take down #1 on the road.
Louisville is the #1 team in the nation. Syracuse is without the best 6 man in the nation in James Southerland. I think you know where I'm headed. As we saw against Villanova, Syracuse will use DaJuan Coleman for extended minutes and Jerami Grant as the first man off the bench. Louisville is very talented with Russ Smith and Peyton Siva as the main scoring threats. Syracuse will have a tough task of stopping them. If Louisville is hitting outside shots with any consistency this game will be over in the first half. I think Syracuse will have extended minutes of scorelessness in this one due to Syracuse's inability to knock down open shots from outside and the lack of driving and kicking to open shooters as of late. Louisville will probably play a moderate amount of zone and they will obviously be pressing a lot. This game could be a nightmare for Syracuse. However I do think they hang tough in this game but wind up losing their first Big East game. The Cards will earn this one over the Orange by 13. No shame in losing to #1 on the road. This game is available nationwide on ESPN at 4:00pm.
