As the spectre of March Madness and the Final Four begin to move into our minds, crowding out the Super Bowl and the yet unfinished NBA season, I’m beginning to think the Syracuse Orangemen have a good shot to end up in the last quarter.
Their recent win over then #8 Villanova displayed a deep and talented team running at peak efficiency. The win over the Villanova Wildcats, coupled with losses by Kansas and Kentucky, puts Syracuse in excellent position to move up in the polls. Syracuse is a basketball team that wasn’t really expected to be this good. That makes for very good press, exciting story lines, and lots of press attention as the Orangemen move into contention for the Final Four. can the dream season happen? Stay tuned.Eric Drouant
