Iona - Syracuse Preview

Syracuse students agree: We're not quite sure where Iona is.
Syracuse did well to beat back Cornell in their season opener. Defense ruled the day. Syracuse now has the opportunity to get better and put on another strong early year performance.
The Orange will face a veteran starting lineup, from Iona, with a few seniors taking the court. Syracuse isn't as lucky, but that probably won't matter. Syracuse is a bigger and more talented team. The key to Syracuse tonight will be the shot blocking and rebounding. Iona has been crushed on the boards so far this season, and that is likely to be worse against Syracuse. Look for Syracuse to get easy second chance points, but also defensive rebounds that could equal quick fast break points for the Orange. SU is a ten point favorite tonight. But I think it should be heftier than that. I'm taking the Orange over Iona by 28.
This game is again on the ACC Digital Network / WatchESPN at 7:00pm. John will be in the Dome. I'll be in the home office watching and online. The answer was New Rochelle. We'll see you out there.
