Syracuse Orange Heading To Final Four In Atlanta
The Syracuse Orange are celebrating the 10-year anniversary of their last Final Four appearance with another trip to the national semifinals.
The Orange won the East Region of the bracket with another dominating defensive performance, holding three-seed Marquette to just 22% shooting, in a 55-39 elimination of their Big East rivals.
James Southerland’s 16 points were a game-high, bolstered by 13 from C.J. Fair. Michael Carter Williams’ impressive all around game was on display once again: a dozen points, ten boards, five assists, two blocks and two steals.
Vander Blue and Devante Gardner scored 14 each for the Golden Eagles, but the rest of team combined for just eleven.
‘Cuse’s dominance was also reflected in the turnover battle, forcing 13 and committing just 6.
The NCAA men’s Final Four will be held in Altlanta, with the semis next Saturday and the national championship game on Monday, April 7.
