Syracuse Basketball: Orange will face a stingy Pittsburgh defense

Syracuse basketball, save for making a deep journey in the Atlantic Coast Conference post-season tournament, has virtually no shot at earning an invite to March Madness. However, the Orange can stay in contention for a solid seed in the ACC tourney, should it continue to triumph.

Up next for the ‘Cuse (15-12, 8-8) is a duel at Pittsburgh (15-13, 6-11) on Wednesday night. The Panthers are in a rut, having dropped four in a row, and Pittsburgh is really struggling to score of late.

For the entire 2019-20 campaign, the Panthers are averaging a modest 65.5 points per contest.
