Syracuse students agree: After beating UConn, SU needs to win it all.
Syracuse had a very good Thanksgiving, beating rival UConn 79-76 in the Battle For Atlantis Semi-final. Now they are playing Texas A&M for the Tournament Title. A&M is coming off a one point win against Gonzaga. A&M has a very good player in Jalen Jones. Basically, if Syracuse can contain him, Syracuse will have a good opportunity to become champs. A&M has a big front court as well. Syracuse will have to keep their key players on the floor and foul free if they want to stay in the game. Syracuse did a great job against Connecticut fouling only when necessary, and Lydon and Roberson had some big blocks. Not only that, but they shot the ball well, not only though screens and driving, but also in transition. They had every answer for UConn in the 2nd half. I guarantee A&M is not used to playing against a 2-3 Zone, and if they are it isn't Syracuse. I think that gives them the edge in this one. I'll take the Orange over the Aggies by eight. This game is available nationally on ESPN / WatchESPN at 3:00pm.
