Game thread: Syracuse vs Gonzaga

Mark Few is going to say Boeheim ducked him

NCAA Basketball: Maui Invitational-Tennessee at Syracuse Steven Erler-USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse Orange (3-1) men’s basketball team looks to bounce back when they face the #11 Gonzaga Bulldogs (3-1) this afternoon in Hawaii. Tip-off is at 2:30 on ESPN2 with Dan Shulman and Jay Bilas on the call.

Mark Few’s squad fell to Purdue by a 73-63 score yesterday and they’ll be back on the court with a little less rest than the Orange. Few will avoid facing his friend Jim Boeheim and he sounds excited about that. Gonzaga is 0-2 all-time against Syracuse.

The Orange offense will be looking to bounce back from yesterday’s dismal shooting performance. Can they find ways to make shots in another early morning game? Will Adrian Autry break down and wear a Hawaiian shirt?

Here’s what we’re watching for in today’s game and take a look at the TNIAAM staff predictions.
