The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team is back in action after a one week hiatus. Winners of two straight, the Orange will take on Niagara from the Carrier Dome momentarily.

As you know fully well, Niagara is coached by Greg Paulus, who played football at SU for one season after his Duke basketball career. Paulus is in his first year as head coach. The Orange lead the series against Niagara 53-28, but these two teams have not met since 2000.

Syracuse is favored by 22 points tonight and the O/U is set at 145. The game officially tips at 7:00 p.m. ET and is available for streaming on ACCNX. If you missed any of our pregame coverage, check that below.
