Syracuse has worked its way back onto the NCAA Tournament bubble by winning 3 of its last 4, including road wins at Louisville and Miami.
A home win over #10 North Carolina tonight would go a long way toward cementing their place in the Field of 68, but the Tar Heels are red hot themselves.
They’ve won 5 in a row, averaging 90 points per game in that span, and that high-powered offensive attack will provide a difficult challenge for the Cuse zone.
SU has scored 90 points just once all season, in a double overtime loss to Florida State.
If they can somehow manage to spring the upset tonight, though, it may be the win that locks up a bid for the NCAA Tournament…which seemed pretty far-fetched just a couple of weeks ago.
ESPN has the call, as they also will for Saturday’s showdown with Duke.
