GameThread: Syracuse Orange (6-0) vs. Kansas Jayhawks (6-0)

LET’S HOOPHALL (Miami Invitational)!

NCAA Basketball: Maryland at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse Orange (6-0) face a familiar-ish foe on Saturday when they head down to Miami to take on the No. 2 Kansas Jayhawks (6-0). These teams haven’t met since a thrilling victory by the Orange in 2008, but it usually does take some sort of tournament to get them together.

While both Syracuse and Kansas have started this season unbeaten, they’ve done so in very different ways. The Jayhawks own a big victory over Kentucky, and have stomped lesser foes. SU’s played well so far, but maybe not to the same extent. That’s fine.

Things get started at 5:30 p.m. ET at Miami’s American Airlines Arena. If you haven’t made the trip, you can catch the game on ESPN or WatchESPN.

But beforehand, what do you need to know about Kansas? Some links to peruse.
