Virginia Tech - Syracuse Preview

Syracuse students agree: It's nice to win the first Conference game.
Syracuse starts conference play after a strong finish to the non-conference slate with a confidence building win against Eastern Michigan. Syracuse was able to pull away after being tied at the half. Syracuse's offense has been a bit stagnant in the last few games, but Syracuse seemed to snap out of it against Eastern Michigan. Virginia Tech on the other hand has had no trouble scoring points. They put up around 91 points a game. So obviously the big matchup in this game is the VTech offense, versus the stingy 2-3 and the tall shot blockers of Syracuse. If Syracuse is able to force turnovers and prevent three point baskets from VTech, Syracuse will have a good chance to win. Honestly, I'm confused as to how Syracuse is favored in this game. My only thought is because it's the first conference game of the season for both teams, and Syracuse is at home, they get the edge. I think Battle has gotten out of his slump and Syracuse should be able to score against Tech. It just comes down to if the Syracuse defense can find the shooters. Good news is Syracuse can rebound, so if Syracuse is able to harass the shooters, they are in good position to get the rebound and get a fast break. I think I'm taking Syracuse, again because they are at home. I'll take Syracuse by six. This game is available on ESPN U / WatchESPN at 6:00pm. John is actually, definitely in the Dome tonight. I'm in the home office. Happy New Years to you and yours! Go Orange!
