Tip off is in 11 mins!!!!
As I've said all tournament, SU will play West Virginia in the championship. Overall, I've said SU would win the national championship.
Dhamp2...the greatest basketball mind in the world. Next to Hubie Brown anyway.
We're missing our center real bad right now, and Butler is up 10 to 1....But it's early.
they will probably win. if they dont then they will have just lost to a team that is better tonight. no excuses
I'm with you....No excuses. We down 7.
Syracuse defense doesn't have enough intesity so far. They have to take it up a couple notches.
Have to get Rautins some open looks. Butler is being stingy on D right now.
Yep....The first two rounds were in Buffalo, NY, basically home games. The team has to wake up.
SU is down 12. I have to call it down the middle. Wesley Johnson can't drive to the basket.
its not the defense thats the problem its the fact that butler is playing that defense very well.. finding holes in it. if you know what to do yoy can beat a zone every time. get in the gaps because it makes the center and guards collapse or else they have to leave you wide open. when they do that you can dish it downlow or kick it out. butler is playing against that zone with perfection so far. butler is scoring because of what they are doing not because of what syracuse isnt doing as far as intensity
Jackson isn't a great low post scorer....It's Kris Joseph, Wesley Johnson and Andy Rautins time....Time for the senior experience to show.
Can somebody tell me where to find the BU lounge? lol
lol...right now this is the bu lounge since its there game so far.
Butler is just playing tougher & with more defensive intensity.
I have a feeling Syracuse will come back & win.
35-25 Butler is up at the half. It's a little disappointing but not to worry. I've been this before. The jitters are gone. We'll be ready in the second half. But we really need our center. If he can't play then so be it, but don't keep it a secret.
they already said he wont be able to play this game. they have been saying it all day on espn
2 bad I cant watch the game oh well I guess I go shoot some hoops!
I know....I mean for next game.
they obviously dontknow anddont wanna say anything because they have to get past the game at hand/ coachs tend to not say much about a game in the future when they dont even know if they will be playing in the futre. dont wanna give the other team motivation material
thats the second time ive seena cuse guard come down on a one on three or four and pull up for a three.. is that normal for them?
Butler WILL win this game with their execution and defense. They're not phased by that zone.
Yeah, they do take those bad shots and made them....I hate it because they aren't high percentage shots. But, we're down 7. They are still turning the ball over though. They can't keep doing that. This will be a close game.
Yea I think Butler wins this now. They are executing, and whenever a team makes a run and the winning team doesn't really waver that much (Butler has done this twice this game) it's usually a sign that they'll win.
And I don't think that's what Boeheim wants Quincey. He's sat Jardine twice for doing that.
DEEP THREE BY RAUTINS....WOW........WE DOWN 4. HERE WE COME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the cuse must have read that tezo..lol
WE UP 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SU STAND UP.....STAND UP ....STAND UP....WHO WANT SOME OF THE CUSE. HUH????? WHO WANT SOME.....THIS IS THE SU LOUNGE. WE DON'T GO DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT.
Damn. I spoke too soon. LOL
Basketball is a game of runs. SU wasn't going to lose by 12. It's going to be a close game. I think Butler will pull it out though.
Butler is going to be right in this game. Executing and defending... Moving the ball against the zone and making the shots that count. They're not going to throw this game away. SU is going to have to beat them.
I think I'll just watch the game...no more predictions. lol..I keep speaking too soon
We've beat teams all year. In the Big-East, out of conference. Richmond, Cornell, California. It doesn't matter.
thats why i didnt make predictions...and alot of teams beat teams in and out of conference..lol..
Butler is my squad. I like them against this zone lol. I'm telling you. I'd have been more worried if they were facing a team that pressures the ball. Hayward for three!!!
its gonna come down to the wire and Wes Johnson is gonna hit a flare screen jumper like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2Nnc_itdEc
just my honest prediction :P
It's almost crunch time so let's buckle down SU and go home a winner! We down 1 point.
Bad shot Butler....SU UP 4.....LET'S WIN AND GO HOME. FOREAL. I MEAN RUN FAST.
If SU loses this game, blame it on the turnovers. Butler needs to execute damn near perfectly to win this game.
Please learn how to inbound the ball. Gosh we could've put the game away.
BUCKET! Yep. Told you Dhamp2. Butler executes and makes plays... Shots win they count.
dang its only 6 oclock over here, I thought it was halftime or something! whats the score
lets go howard..gatorheels has no faith in you show him you are a baller..lol
i am loving this
i said it before and ill say it again.. you have to go against gatorheels during big games that he says wont be close...tenn vs uk first game..kansas vs tenn
haha what a bad freethrow!
game over? I never saw Syracuse once this season ):(
It happened exactly how I said it would. I have Butler going to the Final Four. If I knew Kansas was going to lose, I'd have had Butler going to the championship game.
You jynxed them D-Hamp....
Rautins took the worst shot when they were down 6.....
That was a very weird turn of events...Damn near lucky lol
I said Syracuse would win by 10. They lost. Upsets happen.
SU was a perfect matchup for Butler. An unselfish team that executes, looks for the open pass and has players that can shoot. Perfect matchup.
