Syracuse - Wake Forest Preview

Syracuse students agree: It's important to win on the road in the ACC.
Syracuse starts ACC road play with a trip to Wake Forest. The good news is, it's not like Syracuse has to play Duke tonight. While there are no "easy" games on the road in the ACC, this is an easy game for Syracuse. Strangely enough, Wake Forest's leading scorer comes off the bench. Keyshawn Woods comes off the bench and leads their scoring with 15.7 ppg and leads the team with 29.2 minutes on the floor. He's making 40% of his three point shots, so Syracuse will have to cover him if they want to win the game. But really, this game should be close in the first half, and like the 2nd half against Virginia Tech, pull away and have a comfortable second half. Wake Forest is surprisingly not good this year, and dropped some games early to nobodys. Syracuse needs to avoid an upset here. The good news is Tyus Battle seems to have broken out of his slump and scored nicely against VTech. Also surprisingly, Frank Howard was able to drill some long range shots. I like Syracuse's offense in the new year so far. So I assume that will continue, at least in the second half at Wake. I'm taking the Orange by 12. This game is available nationally on ESPN U / Watch ESPN at 7:00pm. Both John and I will be watching. Stay warm, and be responsible if you have a snow day tomorrow like me. Go Orange!
