What to Know
The Syracuse Orange's homestand continues as they prepare to take on the Drexel Dragons at 5 p.m. ET Nov. 14 at Carrier Dome. After these two teams made easy work of their previous opponents, one of them is set up to suffer a discouraging change of fortune.
The sound you heard last week was the absolute smackdown 'Cuse laid on the Lafayette Leopards. Among those leading the charge for the Orange was Joseph Girard III, who shot 5-for-5 from downtown and finished with 20 points and seven dimes.
Meanwhile, everything went Drexel's way against the Neumann Knights last Tuesday as they made off with a 103-74 victory.
'Cuse is the favorite in this one, with an expected 15.5-point margin of victory. Those taking them against the spread are banking on an outcome similar to that of the team's contest last week, where they covered a 25.5-point spread.
Their wins lifted both teams to an identical 1-0. Both 'Cuse and Drexel have easy wins in recent memory. We'll see which one's ego takes a hit when they face off.
