Game thread: Syracuse Orange (5-2) vs Virginia Cavaliers (6-1)


NCAA Basketball: Louisiana State at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team is on the road to open ACC play against the Virginia Cavaliers.

The Orange are in for a tough test against KenPom’s #6 team in adjusted defense. On the plus side, Virginia guard Kihei Clark has completed his eight seasons of eligibility and has moved onto his med school residency or is studying for the Virginia Bar Exam.

The game tips off from the John Paul Jones Arena at 12:00 p.m. EST. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2, but won’t feature Jim Boeheim on the call.
