Syracuse - Virginia Tech Preview

Syracuse students agree: The first road game can be tricky.
Syracuse begins their second season of ACC play. And we see an old friend in Buzz Williams, who left a pretty good job at Marquette to helm the Hokies. VTech has had a pretty good non-conference slate in terms of offense. They are 4th in the league with a 49% success rate on field goals. Which means the SU defense can only bend and not break in this game, as points will be at a premium for the Orange, especially of Rakeem Christmas gets in foul trouble. However, Syracuse should have a rebounding advantage on the glass at both ends. VTech's leading rebounder, Joey van Zegeren, has been suspended for the game. The one thing Syracuse has really struggled with this year is boxing out around the basket. This should help. Syracuse needs points and Syracuse should get a lot of second chance points. Look for Michael Gbinije to heat it up again. Cooney will add a few big plays, but this will be Christmas' game to dominate. I like the Orange by 11. This game will be available regionally tomorrow at Noon. Check your local listings here. If it isn't on TV, the game will be on WatchESPN (subject to blackout). The ACC begins now.
