Syracuse students agree: Beating Buzz is satisfying.
Syracuse has seen Buzz Williams teams for the better part of a decade. One thing is always guaranteed. He will sweat through at least one shirt. And his teams will play hard. Syracuse travels to Blacksburg to take on a VTech team that is ranked. Syracuse needs the resume boost. Can Syracuse play well on the road? I don't know. You don't know either. My guess is they have a similar game plan to Pittsburgh. As both teams are pretty similar with a big time shooter. Syracuse will need to start hot. If they make shots like they did they will be fine. But even more important is Gillon still passing the ball so effective as he did, and playing with the same intensity as Syracuse did on the defensive end on the floor than they did against Pitt. Either they show up or they don't. But I think Syracuse has all the momentum right now. And Buzz has somehow found a way to blow it against Syracuse in the last few meetings. So I'll take a flyer on the Orange and say SU by 6. This game is available nationally on ESPN U at 7:00pm. Both John and I are watching at home. Good luck to all.
