Syracuse students agree: It's nice to finish the season on a win.
Syracuse has one game left (before the ACC Tournamet) to solidify their bid. Winning gives SU 10 ACC wins, and a sure bid into the big dance. Lose, and you may give doubt to the committee, leaving a tournament scenario to make sure they're in. Either way, Syracuse defeated FSU a few weeks ago 85 to 72. They need to do it again. Roberson bounced back rebounding well against UNC. Syracuse was on fire in their last game. And while I don't think that will happen again to the degree they did in the Dome, they should at least be juiced and ready to play. The only question is will Syracuse limit turnovers? SU committed 20 turnovers in their last meeting, and FSU scored 28 off of those turnovers. If Syracuse limits their turnovers and play efficient offense, Syracuse should again cruise to a victory and an NCAA bid. Despite what I think will be a slow start for SU on offense, due to the week off FSU just had, I don't think FSU can shoot massively over the SU zone, nor do I think they can crack it. SU should slowly overtake FSU in the 2nd half and keep the lead to the end. SU over FSU by 11. This game is available nationally on ESPN 2 / WatchESPN at 2:00pm. We'll see you out there. Go Orange!
