Countdown to Football Frustration

Next Frustrating Hoops Victory

Next Lacrosse Annihilation

This guy barely got off the bus.
Syracuse gave it a solid effort against the #13 team in the country. However it ended EXACTLY like the Pitt game. After the under 4 media timeout the team faded, not really scoring. Miami gave Syracuse a hell of a chance by missing 22 3's, but Syracuse couldn't build a lead when they should have. Despite leading at the half, Syracuse faded and Miami won 64 to 51.
  • Malachi Richardson was the leading scorer for the Orange, bouncing back from disappearing for the last few days. He hit 7-15, 5-6 from the floor for 20 points. He also added six rebounds.
  • Gbinije did have 10 points, but it was on 3-14, 0-7 shooting. He had a horrible game and basically only got to 10 points because of a few free throws. He also had eight turnovers. EIGHT!
  • Syracuse shot only 32.1% from the floor. Miami only did slightly better, but it was enough. They did only make 3-25 on from 3 though.
  • The officiating was uneven in this game. Usually this isn't a valid criticism because 99.9% of the time if the fouls are uneven it's because one team actually is fouling and the other isn't. But in this case one of the officials even admitted to Gbinije that they were calling it different in one end than the other. The fouls were 14 fouls on Miami and 25 on Syracuse. It almost made the game unwatchable for both team's fans.
  • Tyler Roberson had a monster game on the boards, pulling down 11 for a team that sucks at rebounding.
Syracuse has to learn how to close games and quick. Because Syracuse should have been able to get a huge lead and keep it when your opponent takes 25 threes and they only get 9 points from them. This was another bad ending. Let's hope there aren't too many more we have to stomach this year.
