Syracuse - Florida State Preview

Syracuse students agree: A big win on the road would really help right now.
Syracuse has had a rough go lately. Syracuse should have won at Wake Forest. Syracuse should have beaten a shorthanded Notre Dame, and played about as well as most of us thought against Virginia even though they lost. Now Syracuse has a chance to win on the road versus a ranked team. Something Syracuse needs right now like they need better shooting. Syracuse actually has a really great match up with FSU here. Florida State takes a whole bunch of three point shots and are only 6th in making them in the ACC. That's usually a great recipe for Syracuse to win the game by making rebounds off missed shots, getting fast break points, or limiting FSU to just one shot per possession. But I'm just not convinced that Syracuse can take advantage of that by scoring in the half court. And on top of that, I'm not convinced Battle and Howard won't turn the ball over a ton to keep FSU into it or ahead. So just on my gut, I'm taking Florida State by 13, however, again, because this is a good match up for Syracuse, and FSU is coming off another loss, SU could make magic today. This game is available regionally at 2:00pm. Check your local listings here. For everyone else, you can stream on WatchESPN. Both John and I are watching, but I'm at least watching in HD. Go Orange!
