Syracuse Loses To Villanova, Orange Turns To Pumpkins!


Syracuse lost what was basically a must win game at home to No. 21 Villanova 81-71. Syracuse went into halftime with a 35-30 lead but was outscored 51-36 in the second half and struggled from the floor only hitting 40% of their shots. Their defense held 'Nova to under 40% from the floor, but the Wildcats were able to hit on 5 more 3-pointers than Syracuse. What does this mean for the Orange? This doesn't sit well after losing 3 out of their last 4 and travelling to Georgetown on "Big Monday" on ESPN. Unless they want a repeat of last season, Syracuse is going to have to win these close games, especially at home and hopefully throw in a strong win on the road. We all learned last year that wins early on against weak Division I teams and a subpar conference schedule will not get you into the big dance. Let's hope the Orange beat the Hoyas Monday!
