It’s become a yearly tradition for SU to hover around the NCAA Tournament bubble right up until the field is announced on Selection Sunday.
Syracuse enters their final 2 games of the regular season 18-11 overall, 7-9 in the ACC, and squarely on the bubble.
A win tonight and a win Saturday at home against Clemson would get the Orange to 20 wins overall, an even 9-9 in the ACC, and in all likelihood on the right side of that Tournament bubble.
Tonight they face a Boston College team they’ve already beaten at home, but as is the case with virtually every team in college basketball, the Eagles are a completely different team on their home floor.
5 of the 6 BC wins in the ACC thus far have come at home, including victories over Duke, Florida State, and Miami.
Tonight’s game tips at 9 o’clock, and Saturday’s home finale for the Cuse is a 2 o’clock tip.
