The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team advanced to the Round of 32 after winning its First Round matchup over San Diego State. The Orange will now face West Virginia on Sunday for the opportunity to go to the Sweet 16.

Tip-off times were released late on Friday night.

Tip between Syracuse-West Virginia is set for 5:15 p.m. ET on Sunday, airing once again on CBS. The game will be played at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, so it’s a location change from Hinkle Fieldhouse. Jim Nantz is on call while Bill Raftery will be on color. Tracy Wolfson is the sideline reporter. If that sounds familiar, it’s because it was the same crew from Friday.

West Virginia cruised past Morehead State in the First Round 84-67. The Mountaineers opened as 3.5 point favorites, so should Syracuse will have to take down two favorites in a row to advance to the Sweet 16.
