The 2019-20 Fake Nunes Equation of Tumult (#FNET)
You wanted something more ridiculous than RPI and the NCAA gave you NET. We give you more ridiculousness so we bring back the FNET metric.
Head Coach Bench Attire:
Greg Paulus is new to the head coaching ranks but he’s very traditional with his coordinated suit and tie look.

Jim Boeheim’s willing to mix it up with different colored jackets and pants and this approach is enough to turn this matchup in his favor.
NBA 2K Playability:
Elijah Hughes against one of the worst defenses in Division I should lead to some big-time highlights. This is like playing the computer on an easy setting.
Basketball Program Hashtag:
None vs #EaglesTakeFlight
Nicely done Niagara. You’ve got team mascot along with a basketball related descriptor. This is how you social media.
ACC Social Media Favorites:
I mean Greg Paulus, Duke Blue Devils legend is part of this one so it’s really clear.
Boeheim Jacket Toss Meter
1.9/10 We’ve been right the last two games and let’s be honest if Syracuse needs a jacket toss to make sure they beat Niagara then it’s not going to be a silent night at The Dome.
Wrestling Theme Song for this game
Former WWF/WCW star Lex Luger is from Orchard Park, NY and nothing reminds you of the 90s like red, white and blue Zubaz and the Buffalo Bills in the playoffs.
Syracuse wins big and we actually get double-digit minutes for Robert Braswell and Brycen Goodine. Bring on 2020.
