Cornell - Syracuse Preview

Syracuse students agree: They HAVE to beat Cornell, right? RIGHT?!?
After the worst home loss in the Jim Boeheim era (not the worst loss as some not as informed actual, "professional" media have said), Syracuse has had a little while off, enjoyed Christmas, and have had some time to reflect and practice. And much like coming back and taking on Eastern Michigan, Syracuse will enjoy what should be an easy victory against Cornell out of the Ivy League. Taking the mere 60 minute jaunt north, the Big Red come in a red hot 3-8 on the season. This shouldn't be a game. Syracuse might make it one, but I think it will end up like E. Michigan was. Long over before the final buzzer. Which will be a refreshing change of pace to see. Matt Morgan is Cornell's best player, averaging just under 20 points a game. If Syracuse can guard him, and not let him go off, Syracuse should have this game well in hand by the break. Even if Syracuse doesn't keep this close, they should still be the victor. But I like a moderate blowout in this one. I'll take the Orange by 26. This game is available regionally at 7:00pm. Check your local listings here. The usual blackout map here. If it isn't on, it's online at WatchESPN. John is in the Dome. I'm in the home office. Giddy up.
