Syracuse - Pittsburgh Preview

Syracuse students agree: Sweeping Pitt would be great.
Syracuse had a week off and after working in practice Syracuse played their best offensive game of the season against Boston College in the Dome. Syracuse now tries to keep the winning streak alive as they travel to The Pete to take on Pittsburgh. Traditionally The Pete has been a tough place to play for opposing teams, but Syracuse was the team that got the first win there, Tyler Ennis daggered the hearts of Pitt fans, and Pittsburgh is a garbage fire on offense this season. Syracuse has one job and one job they need to do to win. That is stop Parker Stewart from hitting a ton of 3 pointers. Syracuse let him get loose and Pittsburgh had a lead in the Dome. But then Boeheim ripped his jacked off and ripped into his players and the defense tightened. They were able to stop Pittsburgh for virtually the last ten minutes of the game. Syracuse will need to do the same if they want to win at Pittsburgh. SU held Pitt to 45 points in the last game, and nothing I've seen from either team should change that too much. Syracuse just need to again rebound. The interesting question is if Matt Moyer has recovered from his sprained ankle he suffered Wednesday in the Boston College game. An even lighter bench, and a whistle happy crew in stripes could be disastrous for Syracuse. Syracuse needs to be smart on defense and stay out of foul trouble. If they can, Syracuse should have a good day. The depth is concerning, but not enough for me to pick Pittsburgh in this. I'm taking the Orange by 13. This game is available regionally at 4:00pm. Check your local listings here. WatchESPN for everyone else. As always, GO ORANGE!
