After falling at home to NC State earlier in the week, the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team is back on the road to take on the No. 8 ranked Florida State Seminoles.

Elijah Hughes suffered a lower body injury in the opening minutes against NC State on Tuesday. He’s gone through warm-ups and will play for Syracuse today.

Syracuse has dropped three out of its last four games. Florida State lost at Duke on Monday night, but had won its previous three games. Syracuse is 4-1 on the road in ACC play but the Orange face its biggest road test of the season in Tallahassee.

Syracuse opened as a 9.5 point underdog in this game. The over/under is set at 147.0
