Syracuse students agree: Still not at this game.
Syracuse played an interesting game against Cornell on Saturday. They looked flat and cold and couldn't hit anything in the first half. Then the 2nd half opened up, Cornell couldn't score, and Syracuse finally could. Syracuse should have finished off Cornell earlier, but walkons were in by the end, so it's a moot point. However, Syracuse should find it a little easier tonight. Montana State has a couple of pretty solid players thought. The leading scorer is Marcus Colbert, and freshman Tyler Hall is 2nd. Both are guards. Syracuse should have no trouble stopping them, like they did with Cornell. However, scoring has been the issue. If Syracuse can get transition buckets early, this game will be over quick. I look for Roberson and Coleman to again get offensive rebounds, and keep SU ahead in this game. Gbinije should then take over and keep this game out of reach. I don't think this game holds any traps or surprises for Syracuse. Hell, maybe even Cooney will hit an open shot. Either way, SU rolls. Orange by 18. This game is internet only for all at WatchESPN / ESPN 3 at 7:00pm. Enjoy! Well, enjoy about 40 seconds behind anyone you know actually at the game who will surely spoil things going on by Tweeting.
