It's the return of the nooner! Your Syracuse Orange (11-7, 1-4) head down to Winston-Salem, N.C. to take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons (10-6, 1-3) at noon ET today. The game will be broadcast on the ACC Network and ESPN 3 -- you can find a list of local affiliates carrying the game here.
While TNIAAM's staff seems mildly confident in an Orange victory, even if by the skin of their teeth, Deacs fans and #disloyalidiots have hijacked the poll in our predictions thread to create some gloom-and-doom vibes in advance of tipoff. Given the short turnaround between games for both SU and Wake, neither blog really previewed this game in earnest (sorry!). But we did write about basketball a bit the last few days, so you should read some of those articles:
- How many of Syracuse's losses are truly "bad?"
- Why do the Orange struggle to be as consistent as programs like Duke and Kansas?
- This week's podcast DOES talk about the Wake Forest game a little
- Oh, and I wrote an article about my new dog, who's named after Jim Boeheim
