Syracuse prepares for its second game of the tournament against Cal tonight. The Orange couldn’t have played much better than it did in the thrashing over Montana Thursday. Reports of possible NCAA violations hangs over the program, but SU acted as though it was the farthest thing from its mind. A complete effort both offensively and defensively in the win over the Grizzlies gave Orange Nation hope this wouldn’t be such a short trip in the tourney.
