Buffalo - Syracuse Preview

Syracuse students agree: We're not on campus anymore.
Syracuse earned a very exciting overtime win against rival Georgetown on Saturday, but it's a fairly quick turnaround as Syracuse heads back to the Dome to take on nearby Buffalo. UB won't be a particularly tough team for Syracuse. Right now SU is an 10.5 point favorite. Buffalo is without Dontay Caruthers, the current Mid-American Defensive PoY. They also probably won't have Mizzou transfer Wes Clark. That leaves the talented guard CJ Massinburg, who shoots 47% from three, and averages 20 points a game. If Syracuse can locate him, and shut him down, Syracuse should have a fairly easy go of it. I expect the rebounding advantage, and obviously the steals from the top of the Zone for easy buckets at the other end. I'm taking Syracuse in this game, because Syracuse is fired up from the Georgetown win, and that momentum is going to carry over in this game. And really, if there is a team from New York on the schedule that Syracuse should be even a little worried about, that distinction belongs to St. Bonaventure, not the State University of New York at Buffalo. I'm taking the Orange by 17. This game will be available on WatchESPN / ACC Network Extra at 7:00pm. Another Internet Only affair. I think John will be watching in the Dome. I will be catching this one at a later date as I have family obligations tomorrow evening. But we'll catch you on the flip side. GO ORANGE!
