The Syracuse Orange dropped to 26-3, 13-3 ACC after losing at Virginia 75-56 on Saturday afternoon. On the season, C.J. Fair leads the Orange with 16.5 points per game while also averaging 6.1 rebounds per contest. Trevor Cooney is averaging a second-best 12.8 points per game, while Tyler Ennis is averaging 11.8 points per game and a team-high 5.6 assists per game. The Orange are shooting 44.4% from the field while averaging 68.8 points per game as a team this season. Syracuse is a decent rebounding team, averaging 35.1 boards per game. After losing two straight games against Syracuse at home and Duke on the road; the Orange bounced back to get a tough win at Maryland last week before the loss on Saturday to UVA. The Orange will be back at home for senior night on Tuesday; Syracuse would like to play well and put the last two weeks behind them.
Georgia Tech has nothing to play for at this point in the season and they have been terrible on the road this season. Syracuse will try to bounce back after getting their butts kicked at Virginia on Saturday. I think the Orange bounce back and win big on Tuesday night.
