Snap back to reality. Ope, there goes gravity.

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team suffered a 20-point drubbing at Duke on Tuesday night. It was a game that was closer than the final score would suggest, but once again Syracuse wilted after facing a double-digit deficit against a ranked team in the second half.

In spite of Maliq Brown’s inspired play, Syracuse still faces some frontcourt challenges. Could a shakeup of the starting five be in the near future and does it even matter? Fresh off a trip to Cameron Indoor Stadium, Dom joined A Syracuse basketball podcast to breakdown the action.

Topics of conversation include:

  • Dom takes us courtside from Cameron
  • Turnovers came home to roost for Syracuse
  • Duke flipped the script on Syracuse and turned its strengths against it
  • Transition defense is problematic for Syracuse
  • Syracuse needs to get Chris Bell and Justin Taylor shots
  • The asks on JT from the four spot are becoming burdensome
  • Is a change to the starting five on the horizon?
  • Benny Williams still holds the key to this Syracuse team’s potential
  • What to do with the center position
  • ~Chances~ of a Chance Westry return are low
  • Syracuse can still get to where it’s trying to go
  • Of Syracuse’s remaining 17 games, 12 quadrant one and two games remain
  • Keys to the Boston College matchup, Syracuse’s undefeated home record and other storylines
