Jim Boeheim and his Syracuse Orange have struggled out of the gate this year. Losses to Colgate, VCU and Georgetown certainly have not been highlights on their road to a 5-5 record to start the season. A legitimate COVID outbreak has forced the program to be put 'on pause' since December 11th. With their 2nd game of ACC schedule just ahead, the Orange were in danger of possibly forfeiting conference games. Syracuse defeated Florida State 63-60 in Tallahassee on December 4th in there only ACC match-up so far.
With Syracuse University Men's Basketball entering the Sweet 16, fans will eagerly be waiting for Saturday's game against Houston. Those excited fans will have to wait until 9:55PM for that game to tip off and for now that means they won't be able to go to a bar or restaurant to watch it.
