Countdown to Football Frustration

Next Frustrating Hoops Victory

Next Lacrosse Annihilation

Yeah Michael Stephens again blew some calls. No surprise.
Syracuse wasn't favored to win. Miami is a very good team. However, Syracuse had the game tied and had come back twice to ten point deficits. But missed opportunities and missed free throws resulted in a Miami win. The U won 66 to 62.
  • Best player of the game for Syracuse was Tyler Roberson, especially on the defensive end getting rebounds. He finished with ten points and 14 rebounds on a 5-11 shooting day.
  • Michael Gbinije had a middle of the road day, hitting some big shots, but missing a huge dunk. He finished with nine points on 3-8, 1-4 shooting and going 2-6 from the free throw line.
  • Rakeem Christmas had 23 points and eight rebounds. He's pretty freaking good.
  • Syracuse actually had a higher shooting percentage from behind the arc than Miami, 37.5% to 34.5%), but Miami hit 10-29, and SU only hit 6-16.
  • The story was missed free throws for Syracuse. They were 8-19 (42.1%). Horrible.
So Miami missed a good chance to get a nice resume win. They still have plenty of chances left. Sadly this one was at home and winable when it came down to it.
