Boeheim's Record Vs: 1-0

Alcorn Last Year: The Braves finished 10-20 last season. Not much to speak of.

Alcorn Coach: Luther Riley is in his second season at the helm. He's got a 12-32 record so far, so, he's got a ways to go to catch Boeheim.

"Fear Me, I've Killed Hundreds Of Timelords": Marquiz Baker is coming off a 30-point performance and is averaging 25.7 per game. Let's put a hand in his face.

Fun Fact: Check out the current standings of Alcorn's conference, the SWAC...


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!
