It was a rough night for the Orange (14-5, 5-1 Atlantic Coast) in Blacksburg, Virginia with a 78-56 loss against No. 10 Virginia Tech (15-3, 4-2).
After a 21-point loss against No. 11 North Carolina, Virginia Tech was looking for some redemption on their home court — and that’s exactly what they got.
Virginia Tech is the third best three-point shooting team in the country. And that was a big part of the game. With its formidable offense, it became clear early in the game that Syracuse needed to step up its defense to stay in the game.
