    will someone tell the orange that a 2-3 defense wont work against wisky.

    they are masters of the extra pass and hitting 60+% of their 3pt shots.

    it would only be sweeter if herby could talk about how brust is a loose cannon shooting them out of the game....wait that isnt right.

    Syracuse looks like they watched about as much film as Uconn did

    Re: will someone tell the orange that a 2-3 defense wont work against wisky.

    I picked Wisconsin to last the longest out of all the Big Ten teams left in Tuesday's DI, because of this very aspect. I figured if there was ever an offense tailor-made to beat Syracuse's 2-3 zone, it'd be Wisconsin's. And I was almost right, damnit!
    HawkeyeRyno's yearly assessment of Fran's recruiting:

    Really? Because judging by how many of Fran's top targets have committed elsewhere so far and Iowa has no commitments I'd say recruiting trail has been a struggle so far for Fran for the [insert current recruiting year] class.

    they were close but no way they could keep the blistering pace up from 3. remember, Syracuse recruits long, tall, athletic kids to only play a 2-3. it's not your typical 2-3

    The 2-3 zone works a little bit better when you have guys like Syracuse gets year in and year out.
