Cincinnati Bearcats vs. #4 Syracuse Orange | Three Keys - Down The Drive
The loss of Fab Melo has left a massive hole in the center of Syracuse's vaunted 2-3 zone. Jack Cooley, who is similarly sized but not nearly as athletic as Yancy, dominated the interior of the Cuse defense with 17 points on 62 per cent shooting and got to the line 10 times. Oh and for good measure he pulled down 10 boards including 6 offensive. Yancy Gates will outweigh everyone Cuse throws at him by at least 40 pounds and will obviously have a massive advantage in terms of strength. In the last five games Gates has averaged 11.4 points and 9.6 rebounds. He needs to surpass both of those numbers.
