"I would lean toward Syracuse. The Orange had quite a week.... Syracuse had one of the more impressive wins earlier in the week when the Orange steamrolled Georgetown in the final 30 minutes at home last Monday. That's the same Georgetown team that took out Duke in convincing fashion Saturday... This argument has holes on both sides so deciding who is most worthy of the No. 2 spot right now might come down to how you feel about the pair. And right now, after Syracuse found a way to win at DePaul when it didn’t play well, the edge could go to the Orange. " Thanks for the benefit of the doubt, Andy. I really think that the game yesterday was like an in-season LeMoyne game, without the notoriety for actually losing. They will use it to motivate themselves and remind themselves that they need to, as Wes said after the game, get at it right from the tip.
