Syracuse students agree: High Point should be a boring game to watch.
High Point is apparently a real place with a real University in North Carolina. These are things I learned from the Internet before attempting this preview. Also learned is the fact that High Point has never made the NCAA Tournament. They are getting some upward momentum but one of their better players, Allan Chaney, ended his career recently due to a heart condition. They still have a couple nice players however. And they will need to do everything they can to score against Syracuse. High Point's biggest problem is that yes their "stars" score a lot, but they take about 16 shots to get 18 points. They aren't very efficient or accurate. They also don't shoot the long ball well as a team (27.7%). They only average 4.3 three point field goals a game. While High Point will start off well, as most teams do, they can't keep up with Syracuse over the course of 40 minutes. The tough defense will frustrate High Point and they will turn the ball over, which will lead to transition baskets for Syracuse. That will lead to a final score of a lot to a little and we should see walk ons in with a couple minutes to go. Syracuse over High Point by 27. This game is another internet only affair on Watch ESPN / ESPN 3.
