Syracuse Orange (11-7) vs. North Carolina Tar Heels (16-3) GameThread

A win here would be nice, but we may be able to learn things even in a (close) loss.

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse Orange (11-7, 3-2) meet the North Carolina Tar Heels (16-3, 4-1) tonight, in the teams' first matchup since April's Final Four bout. As expected, the Heels come into this one as an immensely talented top-10 team that has designs on getting back to the season's final weekend. Syracuse looks better than they did in non-conference play, but... yeah, an upset here is still a tall task.

This game starts at 7 p.m. ET at UNC's Dean E. Smith Center, and you'll be able to watch the proceedings on ESPN. Syracuse grad Sean McDonough is on the call tonight, along with Orange sympathizer and all-around cool guy Jay Bilas.
