Syracuse basketball has lost some close games lately. First the heartbreaker to Clemson, and then the big game against Duke at home.
Luckily the Orange pulled out a win right before the buzzer against Wake Forst to save their season. Now the Orange must move past those tough games and focus on getting a resume-boosting win versus fringe tournament team in NC State.
The Wolfpack is 15-8 overall, a very similar record to Syracuse (14-9), and can definitely give any team a hard time. Their guards C.J. Bryce and Markell Johnson are very talented and both can rebound and pass the ball well.
