Syracuse students agree: Syracuse can't lose to St. John's 3 years in a row.
The Red Storm make their way back to Syracuse to take on the Orange in a classic match. Not as sexy as Georgetown or UConn, this one can get lost in the shuffle. But this one is still important to long time fans. And not only that, but it really it for New York supremacy. St. John's is a young team, but full of shooters, with the team hitting around 40%. If Syracuse can effectively play defense, and stop St. John's from going off behind the line, they should be able to body the team and get good looks inside. If not, Syracuse is going to lose again. And I'm not sure I can take a season where they lose to Georgetown, UConn, AND St. John's. I do think they hold on at home though, capitalizing on the confidence they earned from Eastern Michigan. I'll the the Orange by 9. This game is available regionally at 7:00pm. Check your local listings here. For those not blacked out, you can watch on WatchESPN. John is in the Dome. I'm at home.
