Syracuse basketball finishes under .500 in Taco Time during 2018-19 season

Syracuse couldn’t quite get over .500 in Taco Time in the 2018-19 season.

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team failed to reach Taco Time in its final five home games, moving the overall record to 10-11 ATTS. The under .500 record is the lowest Taco Time mark in five years, which is great news for the collective digestive systems in the central New York community. One can only hope that a new promotion will take the place of faux mexican food in Syracuse next basketball season.

Interestingly enough, Syracuse won every game in which it scored 70 points or more at home this season. Syracuse hit Taco Time 12 times last season, but lost two of those games. The Orange achieved 70 points or more 17 times in 2016-17, but also lost two of those contests. The 2016-17 season was the high water mark for Taco Time.
