Syracuse has played just three games since Dec. 7 and will have played just four games during a 21-day stretch once it finishes up against the Wildcats. The Orange had five days off before facing High Point. It had eight days of rest between games against Binghamton and St. John’s, the same amount of time it has to prepare for VU.

As long as Ennis stays out of foul trouble on the court, it will be difficult to force Syracuse mistakes. And with the Orange’s large and deep frontline, outrebounding SU will be a formidable task for any opponent, regardless of the zone’s rebounding limitations.
Four members of the Syracuse football team have been named to Phil Steele's All-ACC team. Macky MacPherson and Marquis Spruill were named to the second team and Jay Bromley and Durell Eskridge were named to the third team of Phil Steele's College Football Preview All-ACC list.
