Eastern Michigan - Syracuse Preview

Syracuse students agree: We're definitely not on campus for this one.
After another bad effort down the stretch against Georgetown on Saturday, there's a quick turnaround to this one as we see old friend Rob Murphy, leading the Eastern Michigan team into the Dome. It should be 40 minutes of wall to wall 2-3 Zone. So you know what that means, a lot of passing around for Syracuse around the perimeter and then a rushed shot that will not be fully open. I'm only slightly kidding. Syracuse will have a size and power advantage in the low post in this game. Tyler Lydon is coming off his best game of the year. If he can continue to create miss-matches and exploit them, he will go a long way in this game. Syracuse needs to rely on passes into the short corner to him, and then Lydon will either have to make a move or kick to an open shooter. Syracuse should cruise in this game. But it will probably be pretty close until the final eight minutes. I'm still taking the Orange in this one though. Syracuse over E. Michigan by 13. This game is available nationally on ESPN U / WatchESPN at 7:00pm. Both John and I are in the home office. We'll see you out there.
