Syracuse students agree: Gotta beat 'Sconsin.
The Orange have jumped into the polls after a great Thanksgiving run in Atlantis. Not Syracuse invites Wisconsin into the Dome. However Wisconsin has been struggling this season so far, after making it to the Final 4 the last couple years. But this team isn't the team of last year. This team can't shoot. They're only hitting 30% from long range. And in their last game they only shot 23% total. TOTAL. Good gawd. Nigel Hayes is the glue guy for this team. He can get in the lane and score. If the Syracuse Zone holds him off, Syracuse should have a fairly easy go of it. Wisconsin doesn't have a dominant low post presence. They can't score at will against the baseline of the Zone. Their only hope is to get our players in foul trouble by driving. They may accomplish that, but probably not before Syracuse is up enough for foul trouble to not matter. I think Syracuse will get several transition buckets off of Wisconsin misses. I like the Orange in this one at home over Wisconsin by 16. This game will be available nationally on ESPN 2/ WatchESPN at the odd start time of 7:15pm.
