The only thing standing between the Syracuse Orange and their fourth Sweet Sixteen appearance in five years is the California Golden Bears.

The only thing standing between the Syracuse Orange and their fourth Sweet Sixteen appearance in five years is the California Golden Bears. Just because it's a "home" game for Cal in San Jose, don't expect the Orange to pack it in.

Tipping off 9:45(ish) pm EST, the final game of Saturday pits a Cal team that knows how to make close-range shots and rebound against a Syracuse team that's all about three-pointing you to death and then smothering you with the zone. The big question will be whether or not that zone bends or breaks for Cal's shooters.

The game will be on TBS so that's kinda easy to find, right? Please say yes and don't ask me where to find it...

Need some extra incentive to win this game? Doug Gottlieb's brother is an assistant coach for Cal. Clearly, you have all the reasons you need to want SU to win this game.
