NIT GameThread: Syracuse Orange (18-14) vs. UNC-Greensboro Spartans (25-9)

After a one-day delay, NOW we're playing this one.

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Despite the disappointment of missing the NCAA Tournament, the Syracuse Orange (18-14, 10-8) still have games to play in the NIT. Their first opponent is the UNC-Greensboro Spartans (25-9, 14-4), who they were supposed to take on yesterday until a snowstorm derailed that plan. UNCG coach Wes Miller clowned himself on Twitter when the announcement was made, further complicating this non-rivalry.

So now we tip off this evening instead. The game starts at 7 p.m. ET at the Carrier Dome -- get there safe, CNY residents (if you plan on going). If you're watching from home, it'll be on ESPN2.

Before the game tips off, here are some reading materials you may want to spend some time with:
