Jim Boeheim and his ninth-ranked Syracuse Orange will be taking on the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Monday as part of this year’s edition of the Maui Invitational.
The Orange are 4-0 to start this year, their first as a full-fledged member of the Atlantic Coast Conference. Getting things kicked off by winning the entire tournament would be a great way to send notice to the rest of the conference that they’re here to take care of business–as much as we all know Boeheim hates the ACC move to begin with.
Minnesota comes in undefeated also at 5-0 on the year, but they have yet to play anyone with near as much talent as Syracuse. With the Big Ten seemingly making strides every year in basketball, an upset over Cuse would further fuel that progression.
Here’s how you can watch all of the action unfold as it happens live Monday night:
Date: Nov. 25
Start Time: 5:30pm ET
