The Syracuse Orange (3-0) technically have one Battle 4 Atlantis win under their belt already but now they get to actually play in Atlantis when they take on the Charlotte 49ers today at Imperial Arena in the Bahamas.

Tip is set for 2:30 p.m. and the game will be televised on ESPN2. Here's the full schedule:

Game 1: Gonzaga vs. Washington, 9:00 am PT, ESPN2
Game 2: Charlotte vs. Syracuse, 11:30 am PT, ESPN2
Game 3: Texas A&M vs. Texas, 4:00 pm PT, AXS TV
Game 4: Michigan vs. Connecticut, 9630 pm PT, AXS TV

Charlotte is coming off of two losing seasons and they've got a new head coach in Mark Price (yes, that Mark Price). Get more info about them, the rivalry and other nuggets of interest right here.

If the Orange win, they play the winner of the game between the Michigan Wolverines and the Connecticut Huskies tomorrow. If they lose, they'll play the loser.

Jim Boeheim, Trevor Cooney and Michael Gbinije met with reporters yesterday. Find out what they had to say.

Michael Burke wonders if the Orange might want to consider changing up the starting lineup considering how Tyler Lydon is playing.

We all seem to think the Orange will win today. See if you agree.
