Syracuse Hosts Iowa With Lots To Prove

Dec 2, 2019

With seven games in the books, Syracuse basketball is still searching for their identity.

The Syracuse Men’s Basketball team went 0-2 on its trip to Brooklyn for the NIT Season Tipoff. After its double-digit lose to Oklahoma State, the Orange dropped another game to Penn State 85-64. SU now falls to 4-3 and is playing to stay above .500.

Then they played Oklahoma State.

The Cowboys (6-0) cruised to an 86-72 blowout win over the Orange, dictating a tempo Syracuse couldn’t match. Syracuse was outscored 35-16 on fastbreak points, and the rebounding issues that haunted Jim Boeheim’s squad last year flared up Wednesday night, with Oklahoma State winning the second chance points battle decidedly, 16-5.

The Syracuse Men’s Basketball team is on a three-game win streak. Wednesday night, the Orange defeat Cornell in the Battle of the Boeheim’s Three. This weekend, Bucknell comes to the Dome. The Bisons are currently 2-3 with their most recent loss coming in a game against Penn State.

By the time tip off arrives, Syracuse will have been sitting idle for a full week since their last game, a 73-58 loss at NC State. Syracuse’s streaky offense was held to just 35% from the field in Raleigh and went a dismal 11 of 22 from the free throw line.

The Orange continues its streak after overcoming a 13-point deficit going into the second half and finishing the game with a narrow 72-71 win.
