GameThread: Syracuse Orange (14-5, 5-1) vs. Virginia Tech Hokies (15-3, 4-2)

Game one of a three-game road trip.

NCAA Basketball: Virginia Tech at Syracuse Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team has won three straight, and will try to make it four in a row on Saturday night when they visit the No. 10 Virginia Tech Hokies.

SU’s played pretty well on the road so far this year, going 3-0 with two wins over ranked teams. Meanwhile, the Hokies are unbeaten at home this year — though have lost two of three overall (admittedly, at UNC and at Virginia).
