It's August, how the hell am I writing basketball preview posts?

Somehow, there is basketball to be played as the Syracuse Orange kick off their four-game exhibition stint in Canada with a game against the McGill Redmen in Montreal. Let's get the particulars out of the way. We'll have a GameThread later when the game tips.

Syracuse Connection: The Orange and Redmen have met before...on the football field. Syracuse defeated McGill twice, in 1921 and 1922.
