The Orange go for a 4th straight win tonight in Atlanta.
It wasn’t long ago that Syracuse lost 4 straight ACC games, but tonight they have a chance to climb above .500 in the league with a win on the road against Georgia Tech.
A pair of ugly wins over Pitt sandwiched around a nice win over BC has evened SU’s conference record at 4-4, with tonight’s game representing the halfway point of league play.
The Yellow Jackets are in the midst of a 4-game losing streak themselves, but all 4 losses have been to upper echelon conference foes.
They're 3-5 in the ACC overall, but they’ve played a much more difficult schedule than the Cuse and have already beaten Notre Dame and Miami at home.
With Matt Moyer still likely out “for a while” according to Jim Boeheim, freshman big men Bourama Sidibe and Marek Dolezaj will once again be asked to step up in the SU frontcourt; and with Howard Washington out as well after injuring his leg during yesterday’s practice, don’t be surprised to see 40-minute efforts from backcourt mates Frank Howard and Tyus Battle.
Tip-off from Georgia’s capital is at 8 o’clock.
