Alright. Enough about LeBron James, the New York Knicks and anything about the year 2010. If you’re a true hoops fan, your television should be tuned into one game and one game only tonight: Kansas vs. Syracuse.
The last time Jim Boeheim faced Kansas was when he won his first NCAA title in the 2003 National Championship game. Tonight, the tables will turn as the Orange will face the defending national champion Jayhawks.
Instead of Carmelo Anthony and Gerry McNamara versus Kirk Hinrich and Nick Collison, the new names to watch out for are Jonny Flynn and Paul Harris battling it out with Sherron Collins and Cole Aldrich.
The Flynn/Collins PG matchup will be key as Flynn is currently averaging 20 and 5 while his counterpart Collins is averaging 20 and 3. These two guards not only know how to drop buckets, but can dish the rock and fill up the stat sheet as well.
Although undefeated Syracuse is currenlty unranked, after Monday night’s win over No. 17 Florida, a win (or strong showing) tonight will clearly push the squad back into the Top 25.
Who is going to win this game?
