I'm starting to worry they might only get one NCAA bid this year, guys.

Unexciting Reason To Watch: This is by far Syracuse's worst opponent of the season. It's going to be a blowout and it's going to be boring.

Exciting Reason To Watch: Jim Boeheim has the chance to move to 901 wins all-time, one behind Bobby Knight. That's worth your time!
