Syracuse students agree: We'll hate Cornell from our homes.
Our friends from the south, Cornell, are making the trip up Rt. 13 to I-81 to head to Syracuse to take on the Orange tonight in the Dome. It's the last non-conference game from the Orange. And this one doesn't have the same juice it once had, as Cornell has gone from a pretty formidable Ivy League team, to not even a mid-major. They really haven't been good since Steve Donahue left for Boston College four years ago. Syracuse should easily handle them. Cooney and Gbinije have finally come alive. Christmas was dominant. Joseph has been more careful with the basketball and is clearly growing. Patterson is finally making some shots. Really, the only player that has gone absent has been McCullough, who has said he hasn't been aggressive enough and is looking to change that. While Cornell has a trio of senior leaders, the Orange will be too athletic and too tough for Cornell to upset them. No matter how many three bombs they manage to squeak though (which will probably only be a handfull). I like the Orange by 18. This game will be available nationally on ESPN U / Watch ESPN tonight at 6:00pm. Happy New Years from us at Orange::44 and here's hoping you and your family have an even better 2015!
