Field goal percentage: Syracuse is shooting .456 while the Cardinals come in shooting .457 this season.
Thoughts: The Orange are coming off a win over Villanova while Louisville took care of Connecticut in their last outing. If Syracuse wins this game, they will most likely be the No. one team in the nation come Monday. I expect a very evenly played game with the Louisville pulling out the nail biting win.
