Syracuse keys to win:
- Limit turnovers, the turnover margin vs Villanova was atrocious.
- Andy Rautins needs to have a hot hand, is this necessarily going to win it for us? no. But it will certainly make Devendorf think before he acts. He thinks he's from Scranton, PA now. And when he plays bad, they all play bad.
- Use the shot fake frequently around thabeet and get him in foul trouble with the lean. Take him out of the game so he cannot be a factor late.
Xs And Os- Uconn is a team that loves the fast break. In the half court offensive sets, look for the forwards to go backdoor frequently against the zone, especially if they can successfuly feed the ball into the high post and bring onuaku up, thus creating space for thabeet.
and that's a wrap.
