Syracuse Basketball plays its 17th game of the year versus Boston College Wednesday night. Inside The Loud House tells you how you can watch and listen to the game.
Syracuse Basketball got a huge win over Virginia on the road last game. It was by far the biggest win of the season to date. The Orange know though there is still a lot of work to be done if they want a postseason berth of any kind. That road begins against Boston College Wednesday night in the Carrier Dome.
Both teams come in at 9-7 and both are coming off recent wins on the road at Virginia. However, multiple Eagle players are injured which should give Syracuse the advantage in this one. Syracuse desperately needs wins right now and a team like BC is beatable, especially at home in the Dome, so the Orange know this is a must-win game.
Currently, the Syracuse basketball team is favored to win by a margin of 11 points according to ESPN.com, which is pretty good for an ACC game. ESPN.com also says the Orange have a 86.7% chance of winning the game too.
So what should we expect?
Well, per usual, a trio of Elijah Hughes, Joe Girard, and Buddy Boeheim should be expected to carry the load scoring-wise, but we should also expect decent games from Bourama Sidibe (due to injuries to BC’s big men) and Quincy Guerrier who has been surging lately. Both need to stay out of foul trouble for the Orange to have a shot at winning this game.
Both teams need a win here badly, so look for it to be a tight, contested affair most of the game. Hopefully, the home crowd can help spur the team to victory if the Orange are having a hard time getting shots to fall, which has happened oh so many times this season.
If the Orange can get good looks and make their shots early they can probably pull away in the second half, but if they struggle offensively and regress defensively from the Virginia game, it could be a much harder game than fans or the players anticipated coming in.
