We have seen the Orange get their butts kicked by the Hoyas twice this year, and there is every excuse for them to get whipped for a third straight time. Syracuse has to be considered fortunate to be here after surviving against the Pitt Panthers on Thursday. In fact, the argument could be made that without the play of James Southerland, the ‘Cuse wouldn’t even still be in this tournament. Southerland has knocked down six three-pointers against each Pittsburgh and the Seton Hall Pirates, and at times, he has been the only massive offensive weapon that Head Coach Jim Boeheim has been able to deploy. Georgetown’s defense is the real deal, and if this team is going to make it to the Final Four this year, this is the unit that is going to have to step up to the forefront. We have seen Syracuse struggle and struggle mightily against the Hoyas this year, but we think that all of the anger and all of the pent up frustration of losing twice by double digits to its arch rivals will get this team past its exhaustion. This should be a great game, but we think that Syracuse is going to get its much-awaited win over its hated foes. Free Friday College Basketball Pick: Take the Syracuse Orange +1
