The Syracuse Orange return to action tonight on the hardwood for an unconventional Thursday night 8 pm tip against the Miami Hurricanes. The Orange will look to extend its winning streak and move to 5-1 in conference before a three game road trip.
Miami has struggled this season but is a better team than its record would suggest. Still, the Hurricanes have faltered down the stretch of games given a lack of depth. They don’t rebound the ball that well, but they do shoot it at an impressive clip and don’t foul the opposition.
Syracuse is an 8.5 point favorite with the over/under set at 138.5. Evan Lepler and Cory Alexander are on the call. If you missed any of our pregame coverage, be sure to check that in the links below.

We have Bobby on site tonight from the Dome, so if you’re not already give him a follow.
But Howard + Battle? Tonight’s their night. Wrote this week about their shared point guard dynamic that’s refined itself this year @nunesmagician: https://t.co/UzCILSRk23 pic.twitter.com/hask8Hm5y3— Bobby Manning (@RealBobManning) January 25, 2019
