You wanted something more ridiculous than RPI well the NCAA gave you NET and we give you the FNET

Head Coach Bench Attire:

I’m not saying these coaches share a similarity but if they swapped outfits at halftime it would probably take everyone until the 2nd media timout to figure out.

Advantage: Syracuse because Boeheim’s got those transition lenses working.

NBA 2K Playability:

Chris Lykes is a player made for a 2k video game. His ability to handle the ball and work around bigger players would be excellent especially in the playground modes.

Advantage: Miami

Basketball Program Hashtag:

#CuseMode vs None

How can you call yourselves the Birthplace of Swag and not have a Hashtag? That’s L-A-M-E-R than using the same one for five years.

Advantage: Syracuse by forfeit

ACC Social Media Favorites:

Jim Larranaga’s the grandpa who takes you for ice cream before dinner. Jim Boeheim’s the grandpa who makes you eat all your asparagus and then tells you that still need to drop a couple of pounds.

Boeheim Jacket Toss Meter

6.8/10 If the jacket gets tossed you can safely assume it’s because Dejan Vasiljevic has been left open on the perimeter.


This probably won’t be pretty to watch but Syracuse should be able to finish strong against a team with a shorter bench and hold on for a five-point win 68-63
