GameThread: Syracuse Orange (7-2) vs. Old Dominion Monarchs (7-3)

The Orange aim for win No. 6 in a row.

NCAA Basketball: Cornell at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

After a week off, the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team puts its No. 25 ranking on the line against Conference USA’s Old Dominion Monarchs today at noon ET from the Carrier Dome.

Since a rough 2-2 start, SU’s won five straight contests. Meanwhile, ODU brings its own five-game winning streak to Central New York, including a win over Virginia Commonwealth. The Monarchs are a reasonably good shooting team but play at a fairly slow pace comparable to Syracuse’s. So if you were hoping for a barnburner... sorry, this is not your game.
