Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Podcast: Syracuse Sweet 16 preview

Plus, a special (and more qualified) guest!


The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team is back in the Sweet 16 for yet another ridiculous year! And while we don’t know much about our opponent, the Houston Cougars, we happen to know someone who does. So we’re joined by special guest (and fellow Syracuse alum) Kevin Brown to tell us everything we need to know about the best team in the AAC — and the top seed remaining in the Midwest Region.

Some of the specifics of this episode:

  • Why don’t more teams at least try the zone given the tournament results?
  • Kevin tells us what makes Houston worthy of a 2-seed
  • Also where the Cougars’ play provides an opening for Syracuse
  • Speaking of — the Orange look unflappable right now, thanks to fast starts
  • Brief discussions about Kadary Richmond and Joe Girard
  • How the evolution of Buddy Boeheim’s play is powering SU’s offense
  • Want more beer?: Follow John and Dan on Untappd
