#FakeNunes previews Syracuse vs. NC State

It’s a Sunday Night Special

NCAA Basketball: N.C. State at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back, Fake Nunes fans. We’re here for another season of Syracuse Orange ACC Basketball so let’s see if the Orange can rebound from the Virginia loss as they return home.

Opponent: NC State Wolfpack

Location: Raleigh, NC

Students: 36,304 students who refuse to recognize Carmelo Anthony as the true ACC GOAT

The 2020-21 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’re bringing back a revised FNET metric.

Head Coach Bench Attire and Mask:

Kevin Keatts is one of those coaches who have suffered from the casual wear. Gone are the flashy suits and spectacular shoes.

Try and find a photo of Jim Boeheim actually wearing his mask. No, really give it a shot.

Advantage: NC State

NBA 2K Playability:

You don’t have to worry about Devon Daniels’ torn ACL in 2K City. Even then it’s still not enough.

Advantage: Syracuse

Basketball Program Hashtag:

None vs None

Well well well. Look at what we have here. A whole lot of nothing.

Advantage: Push

ACC Social Media Favorites:

Braxton Beverly vs Marek Dolezaj

Good luck trying to beat any of the Triangle schools in this one. It’s not going to happen no matter how many teeth Dolezaj loses

Advantage: NC State

1.7/10 It’s still going to happen at some point this season. The bubble position is precarious and you can tell Jim’s tired of having the chin strap while yelling at Alan Griffin about closing out on shooters. Be patient fans, when it happens it’s going to be something special.


The Daniels injury is crushing to a reeling Wolfpack squad. Syracuse has been stewing for almost a week after the Virginia game and the Orange come out firing and hitting from deep as they cruise to an easy win and Jim Boeheim bashes everyone who complained about his guards this week.
