The ACC Tournament is heating up considerably in Greensboro, and Friday night’s two game session kicks off with a solid battle between the Syracuse Orange and the NC State Wolfpack.
The Orange won their first 25 (yes, twenty-five) games in route to the #1 ranking in the country, but since that time, Syracuse has struggled to a 2-4 mark. However, they played extremely well in lambasting Florida State on the road (by 16 points) in their regular season finale, and there is a real thought that the Orange simply needed to rediscover themselves in the manner in which they beat up on the Seminoles.
NC State is led by ACC Player of the Year TJ Warren, but they aren’t a one trick pony offensively. The Wolfpack score more than 112 points per 100 possessions as a result of their versatility, and if they can take care of the ball (solid turnover rate this season), they’ll have a puncher’s chance against the admittedly more talented Orange.
