Just in time for the actual (instead of spiritual) end of football season, the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball season kicks into a higher gear tonight. SU hosts the Maryland Terrapins (6-1) as part of the annual ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The young Orange squad has looked pretty good on the defensive end so far, and has at least given us some hope for a more optimistic outlook on the year.
But for those positive vibes to continue, that will require a win here over the Terps.
Things get started at 7 p.m. ET at the Carrier Dome. If you’re not in attendance, you can catch the game on ESPN2 (a real channel!) or WatchESPN.
But beforehand, what do you need to know about Maryland? A couple links to peruse.
