They are 2-0 like UConn and like UConn struggled to beat Morehead State. Syracuse has struggled offensively due to being without starting point guard Frank Howard, who may be back for the UConn game Thursday. Inserted into the starting lineup in his place is freshmen Buddy Boeheim, the 6’5” son of Jim, who is reportedly a 3 point threat but has shot the ball poorly in the first two games and probably isn’t ready. If Howard is back, Syracuse has all 5 starters back from a sweet 16 team. They are long and athletic and very good defensively, but I don’t think they are a great shooting team. This is a very difficult opponent which will likely be favored.
