GameThread: Syracuse Orange (11-2) vs. Virginia Tech Hokies (11-2)

Let’s end 2017 on a better basketball note than the one it started on.

NCAA Basketball: St. Bonaventure at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Before you get going on your New Year’s Eve plans, the Syracuse Orange (11-2) have something else in mind for you. They’ll begin ACC play today against the Virginia Tech Hokies (11-2), a fellow unranked team -- but one that’s getting a decent amount of consideration in the polls. Tech’s one of the country’s top shooting teams thus far, which should get you at least a little concerned coming in.

Things get started at the Carrier Dome at 6 p.m. ET. You can watch the game on ESPNU/WatchESPN.

But before all of that, what do we need to know about the Hokies in advance? Some links to peruse at your leisure:
