Eager college basketball fans are taking careful notes and tracking stats and rankings on all potential March Madness contenders, and anyone who’s watching has definitely taken notice of the Syracuse Orange this year.
First time ACC contenders, the Syracuse University men’s basketball team is turning heads with their undefeated record so far this season. Currently, the Orange are ranked first in the NCAA with a record of 21-0. It’s no wonder why ‘Cuse fans are excited about the Orange this year! But will they be able to maintain this momentum with the March Madness tournament on the horizon?
Fans are still talking about Syracuse’s 2-point overtime win over Duke early this month, calling the game an “instant classic.” But the two teams will tip off again February 22nd, and this time the stakes are even higher.
