Wednesday night in the Maui Invitational brings us a match up of two Top-25 teams when the eighth-ranked Syracuse Orange will take the floor against the 18th-ranked Baylor Bears.
On Tuesday night, Jim Boeheim and his crew defeated Cal, 92-81, one night after defeating the Minnesota Golden Gophers. Guard Tyler Ennis led the way in that one with 28 points, and Coach Boeheim has expressed that this trip to Maui has been great for his team as a whole:
“These two games out here have been great games, great for our team,” coach Jim Boeheim said.
Baylor has also enjoyed themselves a nice trip to the islands. A day after defeating Chaminade, they enjoyed a huge one-point victory over a Dayton team that had just beaten Gonzaga on Monday evening. Cory Jefferson would get a putback with 16 seconds left to give the Bears to win, and the opportunity to play the Orange.
