The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team looks to get out of the Maui Invitational with a win as it plays the host team Chaminade in the last place game.

The Orange are 0-2 in this year’s event, falling to ranked foes Tennessee and Gonzaga. The Silverswords lost to Kansas and UCLA. Both teams have had trouble rebounding the ball in this event — Chaminade is getting out-rebounded by 15.0 rebounds per contest in Maui. Plus, both teams are struggling to shoot the ball as both the Orange and Silverswords are just over 29% from outside on the season.

These two teams have met only once prior to tonight, an 82-44 Orange victory in the 1998 Maui Invitational. The game tips off from the Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu at 9:30 p.m. EST. The game will be broadcast on ESPNU.
