It’s the ACC version of Bernie vs Biden

Admit it you thought this was Boeheim at first glance

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team travels south to close out the regular season and conclude this week’s “Battle of the Jims”

Opponent: Miami Hurricanes

Location: Coral Gables, FL

Students: 17,811 students who aren’t convinced Manny Diaz is the answer

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:

Jim Larranaga has embraced the vision of #TeamNoTie but this outfit doesn’t scream Miami at all. This is something you’d expect to see in South Bend not South Beach.

NCAA Basketball: Miami-Florida at Georgia Tech Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

This would be the perfect time for Jim Boeheim to go #TeamNoTie with a Saturday afternoon game in Florida but we won’t hold our breath.

Advantage: Syracuse

NBA 2K Playability:

Miami’s record isn’t very good but Chris Lykes Isaiah Wong and Dejan Vasiljevic form quite a perimeter trio.

Advantage: Miami

Basketball Program Hashtag:

None vs None

What a disappointing way to end the regular season....we expected more from you Miami.

Advantage: Push

ACC Social Media Favorites:

Sorry but no one’s topping Chris Lykes on this one

Advantage: Miami

7.3/10 You can’t show off your beach body under a sports coat and you can’t go into the ACC Tournament on a winning streak if you don’t use all the weapons in your arsenal.

Wrestling Theme Song for this game

Look if you thought we’d pick The Rock for this one you’ve got to be kidding. The Great One doesn’t belong anywhere near this Hurricanes team so instead we’re choosing “The Bad Guy”. Hey yo.....

Prediction:

Vasiljevic had to enjoy watching the film of BC filling it up from outside the arc but once again the Orange will enjoy a huge advantage in the line. Elijah Hughes makes his final case for ACC POY with another 25 point 5 rebound 5 assist game to lead Syracuse to a win.
