Syracuse students agree: Late games don't bother us. We'll just skip tomorrow.
Syracuse lost F Christ McCullough to a season ending ACL injury on Sunday. Which means Syracuse's bench options are even smaller, and one is now a starter. That man is Tyler Roberson. If he can continue to rebound and add even a small amount of offense, Syracuse should be in decent shape. Syracuse, with a short bench, must get foul free minutes from Christmas. He has been much smarter as of late (minus whatever ridiculous thing the official thought he saw for his 4th on Sunday), and should continue to be rock solid for Syracuse. This game is the weird scenario where instead of looking to run, Syracuse will want to slow the game down and it's opponent will try and push tempo. Kalep Joseph has been excellent at distributing the ball lately, putting to ease my thoughts on SU's ability to run half court offense. This will be a gut check game for Syracuse, but they should have the talent to overcome Wake Forest. SU over the Deacs by 9. This game will be available regionally at 8:00pm, and because there are dual ACC Network games on at 8 tonight, it won't be on TV that much. You can check and see if your local station has the game on here, or the WatchESPN blackout map for the rest of us here. I'll be watching online so I'm sorry for the delay already.
