Joe Girard of old helps lift Syracuse men’s basketball to Sweet 16

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team is still dancing as Jim Boeheim once again advanced his team to the Sweet 16. The timely play and shooting of sophomore point guard Joe Girard played a big part in that.

Through two NCAA Tournament games, Girard has put up 24 points, 14 assists and 12 rebounds on 7-of-16 outside shooting (43.8%). He’s Syracuse’s leading assist man and rebounder (!) throughout the NCAA Tournament. Now, to be fair you or I might be able to rack up a few assists passing to Buddy Boeheim right now, but Girard has played well in post-season play to be sure.
