Syracuse Orange vs. Virginia Cavaliers, 1/11/20 Prediction & Odds

Syracuse Orange vs. Virginia Cavaliers, 1/11/20 Prediction & Odds”

Girard II had a game-high 19 points and Hughes was right behind him with 18. Virginia fell behind early in overtime while the Orange ignited offensively, recording enough three-point shots to run away with the lead.

Saturday's game could be another slug-fest, as these two struggling offenses try to outscore the other.

This despite massive foul trouble for Syracuse, particularly in the post, as the Orange lost Bourama Sidebe to fouls, and had to get big minutes in the second half and OT from Marek Dolezaj and Quincy Garrier with four fouls.

UVA then went scoreless for seven minutes before Braxton Key ended the drought with a jumper that put his team ahead, 37-36, with five minutes remaining.

Regardless of its offensive shortcomings, Virginia is 17-3 straight up in its last 20 games dating back to last season and 12-1 straight up in its last 13 games at home.

Tied at 11, junior forward Elijah Hughes scored back-to-back three-pointers to help Syracuse secure the lead.

In regulation, Syracuse shot 26 percent from the field, including a 7-for-24 performance from 3-point range. Jay Huff had 16 points and 10 rebounds for Virginia. They were a combined 4 for 18 from deep in the first meeting with Virginia.

Virginia continued to apply pressure as Huff and Clark scored points inside the paint, extending the unanswered run to 12 points. Syracuse's tournament hopes are now very slim but a win against this Cavalier side would certainly lift the spirits of Orange fans, however unlikely it may be. The score stayed even at 39-39 as the game entered its final four minutes.

Saturday marks another loaded day in the Atlantic Coast Conference, with six games and 12 teams in action as we are fully engulfed in conference play. Joseph Girard III accounted for 12 points and two assists.

"There are certain things you can't control and that is the message", Coach Tony Bennett said.

Virginia would twice get the margin back to five, but a Boeheim wing and prayer - a 40-footer that he flung in the general direction of the basket after chasing down a loose ball as the shot clock expired - would make it 57-49 Syracuse with 1:19 to go.

The defending champs did not back down at the sight of adversity and instead took a second half lead of their own after taking Syracuse's best shot.

Virginia had a rough go of it at Boston College and its offense continues to be brutal to do no favors to what is still the top-ranked defense nationally in terms of adjusted efficiency. Look at it for what it is. If Saturday can be one of those nights when they can get into a rhythm for a large period of the game then there is upset potential.

Virginia travels to Tallahassee, Fla.to face Florida State Wednesday at 7 p.m., and the game will be broadcast on ESPN2.
