I like the Orange, but I don't see how this stock can go any higher. That said, for a team that can't make threes or score in the post, the Orange can put a lot of points on the board. They're taking care of the ball (just 10.9 turnovers per game) and that zone defense is as riddling as ever. This team is typified by junior point guard Scoop Jardine, who only makes 30 percent from three-point range but is ranked in the top five in the Big East in assists, steals and assist-to-turnover ratio. As I said with respect to Pitt, this is a season where steady but unspectacular could very well win the race.
— Seth Davis rates Syracuse as a "HOLD" and above is his pretty accurate assessment of the team this season. I don't think we can be insulted by a HOLD when you're the #4 team in the nation. Will Cuse go higher? Sure, but only if the teams in front of them lose.
