Syracuse Basketball: Predictions vs Baylor in NCAA Tournament

On Wednesday afternoon, the Syracuse men's basketball team announced news that impacted NCAA Tournament brackets everywhere. The NCAA Tournament Odds for the game have the Orange favored to pick up the win here.

Baylor (19-13) lost to Iowa State in the first round of the Big 12 Tournament, but has had plenty of rest to prepare for Syracuse (20-13).

The Bears don't have lethal 3-point shooting, but they have enough competent options to give Syracuse some trouble.

The is the third all-time meeting between Syracuse and Baylor with the Orange having won both previous matchups, in the 2006 and 2013 regular seasons.

Arsenal 'set to send Denis Suarez back to Barcelona'
The Spanish midfielder joined the Gunners on loan in January, but has failed to impress and is yet to start a single game under Unai Emery .

Syracuse senior point guard Frank Howard has been suspended indefinitely because he failed a drug test before the NCAA Tournament, three people familiar with the situation told The Daily Orange on Wednesday night. Whichever version of Mason shows up against Syracuse on Thursday, he could be the Bears' X-factor in determining the outcome.

"Fortunately, Tyus has played the point quite a bit this year, even when Frank came back at Duke and several other spots along the way", said Boeheim. But as a team, the Orange struggle with their offensive efficiency. "That's what - we know who we are going to play this game with, that is all we are focused on". This time, he'll be tasked with navigating Syracuse's zone.

Tyus Battle, Howard's backcourt mate, would seem a likely candidate, though Boeheim would not tip his hand.

Howard averaged 8.9 points, 2.9 assists and 2.0 rebounds this season.
