SU lost to Kansas by 16 Saturday night in Miami, but they’ll look to get back on the winning track against UCONN at Madison Square Garden tonight.
The Huskies are 6-2 on the year, but in their last 4 games they’ve been blown out twice (by Michigan State and Arkansas) and needed overtime to beat Columbia and Monmouth.
The Orange, of course, are 6-1 with 5 cupcake wins and a 2-point victory over Maryland preceding the Kansas blow out.
Last year in New York, UCONN beat Syracuse by 2, and the year before the Cuse defeated the Huskies by 3 in the Bahamas.
Tip off from MSG, for Game 2 of the Jimmy V Classic, is scheduled for 9 on ESPN but will likely be pushed back following Game 1 between Villanova and Gonzaga.
