The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team is set to tip from Greensboro as Jim Boeheim’s club takes on North Carolina for the second time this season. North Carolina won the previous matchup, a 92-79 dismantling in the Carrier Dome.

Despite being the No. 6 seed, Syracuse is a 2.5 point underdog to the No. 14 seeded Tar Heels. KenPom predicts a one point Syracuse victory, however, for what that’s worth.

Worth mention that this will be the last game of the 2020 ACC Tournament that fans are allowed to attend. In response to the NCAA’s announcement that fans will not be allowed to attend NCAA Tournament games this season, the ACC announced that only essential personnel will be allowed to attend ACCT games beginning tomorrow. No word on how/if fans will be reimbursed for tickets.
