Syracuse students agree: Keeping the streak alive is important to stay in the NCAA hunt.
Syracuse ends their 4 game home stand tonight in the Dome, as the blustery cold of Central New York welcomes the Florida State Seminoles. This is a team with a very interesting makeup. They are led by freshman guards Dwayne Bacon and Malik Beasley, who score 17.3 and 16.2 points per game respectively. Stopping these two will be imperative to Syracuse winning the game. Interestingly, FSU has a 7'3'' player in Boris Bojanovsky. However he shouldn't be much of a scoring threat. As long as SU rotates in players at the center position and no one player gets into foul trouble, I like the Zone to keep FSU at bay and prevent Bacon and Beasley from getting to the basket too much. FSU is not known as a heavy 3 point shooting team. They average 6.3 made 3s a game. However, Syracuse has been playing much better defense as of late. I think FSU will struggle to score late in this game. I like Syracuse in the Dome by 13. This game is available nationally on ESPN / WatchESPN at 7:00pm. John will be in the Dome. I'll be in the Home Office. Should be fun for all ages.
