The Orange put up an impressive win over Georgetown last night to advance to 20-1 on the season. They’re currently ranked #4 in the country and have wins over five teams that are ranked in the AP Top 25. The average margin of victory against those ranked opponents is 13 points.
There’s an emerging sense among Syracuse faithful that we are witnessing something truly special with this team. They’re getting solid veteran leadership from seniors Arinze Onuaku and Andy Rautins, as well as a youthful spark from underclassmen Kris Joseph and Brandon Trische. And let’s not forget their stud forward Wes Johnson, a junior who leads the Organce in scoring with 17.1 points per game while shooting 44.6% from behind the three-point arch.
They distribute the ball, they’re unselfish and they absolutely maul teams on defense. Oh … and they have a rapping assistant coach. That sounds like the perfect formula for a team that is poised to go deep in the NCAA tournament!
