Taco Time: Joe Girard III moves SU to 2-1 ATTS

Another Orange freshman rings the taco bell.

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

With eight-and-a-half minutes remaining in Saturday night’s win against Seattle, Syracuse Orange men’s basketball guard Joe Girard III dribbled around a screen by Bourama Sidibe. He moved to the top of the three-point arc, shuffled in front of it, and then quickly stepped back behind the line and launched a shot over his defender.

The ball banked in the basket, putting the Orange up 71-56 with 8:18 left in the game. The shot gave Girard III his fifth three-pointer in six attempts and his final points in a game in which he scored 24.

It also unlocked the second Taco Time of the season. Ticket holders from the game will be able to enjoy a free taco at any participating Taco Bell restaurant.

Syracuse is now 2-1 against the taco spread (ATTS) in three regular season games this year. Last week, Jesse Edwards, another freshman, brought fans their first Taco Time of the season.
