Well, here we are again. Syracuse plays in its third NCAA tournament game of the year. Tonight it’s Houston in the Sweet 16. Can the Orange take down the 2-seed or will the Cougars send Coach Boeheim’s squad back to reality? We’ll find out tonight at 9:55 EST inside Hinkle Fieldhouse.
Yesterday, Gill Gross and I gave a preview and made our picks for tonight’s matchup. If you haven’t listed to that already I strongly suggest you do so:
I’ll be at Hinkle tonight for SU’s biggest game of the season thus far. There are a few things to keep a look out for tonight that I’ll keep you updated on throughout on Twitter @OrangeFizz. For Houston, it’s all about Dejon Jarreau. As well all know by now the senior is playing with a hip-pointer that left him in excruciating pain after the Coogs win over Rutgers last weekend. I’ll let you know how he looks in warm-ups as well as provide any updates on his activity pre-game. For Syracuse, it’s more of the same. How good does Buddy Boeheim look? Will he continue his hot streak that has put the Orange in this position? All will be seen tonight.
I’ll have you covered throughout tonight’s matchup on Twitter, as well as after the game with an instant reaction post on our website and a postgame FizzCast with Gill Gross. If you’ve missed any of my posts from this trip make sure to head over to our “Featured” page to find all my content.
