Syracuse Orange attempt alley-oop, fail miserably (GIF)

The Syracuse Orange are trying to get back to making a deep run in March Madness this year and are relying on their young and big talent to help them get their. But while the team would like to make it to the Final Four and eventually the National Championship, there is still plenty of work ahead of them.

Being the No. 2 team in the country though is something that helps you get off to a great start and that’s the case for Syracuse this year. However, just having a nice ranking in the polls isn’t enough to secure a deep March Madness run as the young talent on the roster needs to come together.

It didn’t come together very nicely on this failed alley-oop play.


Lob City certainly isn’t making it’s way to New York this afternoon, but the Syracuse Orange are still the No. 2 team in the country and a failed alley-oop is only temporary embarrassment.
