Syracuse students agree: No matter what, Syracuse can totally beat BC.
Syracuse heads into ACC play on the road in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts to take on Boston College. The Eagles head into this game at 7-6, only slightly worse than 8-5. But they are, in fact, a decent basketball team when given the right match up. Syracuse will need to make baskets, as chances are they won't get many second chance buckets against BC. They are tied in rebounding with Virginia atop the ACC standings. Syracuse will need to make buckets, but specifically the easy ones they should definitely hit. Otherwise, it will be a long day. Syracuse also must stop Jerome Robinson. He's one of the few BC players that averages double digits in scoring, and if allowed to, will light up Syracuse. SU will have to find him and cover him. If Syracuse is successful in limiting Robinson's points, and frankly, doesn't allow some rando to then become ACC player of the week, Syracuse should win. I like Syracuse to force a few steals here, but more importantly, continue their hot shooting from outside. Additionally, if it comes down to it, BC is somehow worse at free throws than Syracuse. And we know how much they matter. The gym will be quiet. Students are home on break, and not many go to games at BC in the first place. So I think there will be a decent crowd for Syracuse there and they should edge out BC for their first ACC win of the season. And they need to. I'll take the Orange by 8. This game is available nationally on ESPN U / Watch ESPN at 12:30. Both John and I will be on campus at BC so giddy up. Let's go Orange! FOR BOSTON, FOR BOSTON, THE OUTHOUSE ON THE HILL!
