In South Region action on Saturday, the third-seeded Syracuse Orange will be taking on the 11th-seeded Dayton Flyers as the 2014 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament rolls along through the month of March.
Syracuse was able to easily cruise past their Second Round obstacle on Thursday in the Western Michigan Broncos. After the way Jim Boeheim and his team ended the regular season, and the way they were ousted from the ACC Tournament by NC State, a blowout win was just what this team needed to get some of their confidence back, as they’re going to start running into some stiffer competition.
That”s exactly what they’re going to get from Dayton on Saturday–stiff competition. In their Second Round match up on Thursday, the Flyers upended Aaron Craft and the Ohio State Buckeyes, proving that they’re here in this tournament to prove a point. And a win over Syracuse on Saturday would indeed prove that point, emphatically.
In anticipation of this huge showdown, here’s a video preview of the action via Campus Insiders:
Who do you think will walk away with the win, and advance to the Sweet 16?
