The Syracuse Orange (3-0) men’s basketball team looks to keep the perfect Maui Invitational record when they face the #7 Tennessee Volunteers (3-0) this afternoon in Hawaii. Tip-off is at 2:30 on ESPN2 with Dan Shulman and Jay Bilas on the call.
Rick Barnes’ team is looking to make a deep NCAA Tournament run this year after falling in the Sweet 16 against FAU last year. The Volunteers have been led by transfer Dalton Knecht who is averaging just under 20 points per game while shooting 54% from the field.

Syracuse needed a huge comeback to beat Colgate in their last game. Will the Orange be able to step up in competition and land a major win early in the season? How will Adrian Autry look in a Hawaiian shirt?
