Syracuse students agree: No one should like Rick Pitino.
It's not Valentine's Day, but another foe is heading into the Dome. The Cards come in ranked in the Top 25, looking to stay hello to old friend Syracuse. And Syracuse isn't nearly as good as the past few seasons obviously. Yet, Syracuse does have a chance in this game. Since Syracuse plays 2-3 that means Louisville will have to shoot some buckets over the zone from three. Louisville only shoots 32.2% from long range in ACC play. So if Gbinije still keeps making shots, and he ends up with more than Terry Rozier, chances are Syracuse has a great shot to win. Both Christmas and Montrezl Harrell will be battling down low. They will probably end in a wash. If Louisville shoots below 30% from 3 and Gbinije outscores Rozier, they should win. If not, it won't be good. A nice upset would help the Orange faithful. Not that matters much. But bragging rights go a long way. I think Louisville will be just too much for Syracuse at this point. Louisville over the Orange by 12. Tune in nationally on ESPN / WatchESPN at 7:00pm. I'll be in the home office. John is in the Dome. Let's get crazy.
