The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team returns home for casual CNY fan’s favorite winter event- a Saturday home game against Duke.

Students: 16,095 students who spent the last few days writing “We’re sorry for taunting Jeff Capel” in their Krzyzewskiville tents

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:

Coach K and Coach B are definite throwbacks to the head coach sideline dress code of sport coat and tie at all times.

I’m using this picture again because I’m imagining that Jim’s looking at Coach K’s sneakers like “What are those Mike?”

Advantage: Push. It’s 2020 and no one cares if you wear a tie to every basketball game.

NBA 2K Playability:

Cassius Stanley dunks.

Advantage: Duke

Basketball Program Hashtag:

None vs #

That’s exactly how Duke has it on the MBB twitter page and “I’m sorry but that’s gonna be a No from me dog”

Advantage: Syracuse

ACC Social Media Favorites:

Tre Jones, Matthew Hurt, Joey Baker. I mean the Orange don’t even have a chance here.

Advantage: Duke

Boeheim Jacket Toss Meter

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

9.65/10 Primetime ESPN game against Duke with Syracuse’s Tournament hopes hanging on like a freshmen climbing up to row VV in Section 304 after a long day of pre-gaming. Oh if Syracuse has a lead after the under-8 timeout in the second half, Boeheim’s jacket might end up in Neil Gold’s lap.

Wrestling Theme Song for this game

Nothing screams Duke more than Ric Flair at WrestleMania with Mr. Perfect and the woman at the :40 mark certainly agrees.


What’s more Syracuse than losing to Clemson by 1 then turning around and beating Duke by 7 at home? Ok it’s someone complaining about the traffic on 690 and that idiot Mayor in Solvay...but what’s more Syracuse Basketball than that?

Cuse by 4 and the Final Four bandwagon expands exponentially.
