The Syracuse Orange head down to the ATL looking for their first ACC WIN of the season.
Opponent: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
Location: Atlanta, GA
Students: 32,722 students who hate Calculus as much as you do
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:
Josh Pastner should have the advantage here. He’s younger, he spent plenty of time in Arizona but yet he’s dressing like a junior partner at an accounting firm.
Boeheim’s sideline demeanor has been a bit subdued this season but will it boil over this weekend.
Advantage: Syracuse because distinguished beats disheveled
NBA 2K Playability:
Michael Devoe’s shooting 58.6 % from 3 this season and James Banks is a rebounding machine so he can just grab the boards and kick out for Devoe to launch again.
Advantage: Georgia Tech because shooting 3s with Devoe while screaming can you stand the rain at your opponent is how we want to live
Basketball Program Hashtag:
None vs #BuiltDifferent/TogetherWeSwarm
Look we don’t want that old hashtag back but Syracuse not even bothering to come up with one while GT has two. That’s not a good look.
Advantage: Georgia Tech even though they should have something Wu-Tang related
ACC Social Media Favorites:
One of these times Marek Dolezaj will come out on top but not over Jose Alvarado
Advantage: Georgia Tech

6.9/10 This would be a nice time for Jim to buck toss tradition and his jacket on the road
Wrestling Theme Song for this game
So many choices for Atlanta but not many themes actually reference the city in the song. Let’s hope the Orange can walk out of Badstreet USA with a win and a Boeheim version of the Michael PS Hayes strut.
It would be nice to break this losing streak before Orange fans start demanding that Brad Pike and Ryan Cabiles need to retire... but the swarming GT defense stings Syracuse in the end.
