Tim Welsh calls Syracuse an NCAA Tournament team that could play into second weekend

Welsh: Ennis and Grant should stay at Syracuse

ESPN and SNY’s Tim Welsh calls in to discuss the first eight games of the basketball season with Wes Cheng on The Juice on the Cuse Podcast hosted by SNY.tv. The Juice Online Brad Bierman then calls in to discuss Syracuse’s remaining non-conference schedule.

Here are the highlights from the show:

Wes Cheng: Coach, do you see Syracuse as an NCAA Tournament team this season?

Tim Welsh: I think they can cause people a lot of problems with this zone. I think they look good early, and they’re only going to get better and better with their offensive execution. When you have a guy like Tyus Battle out there on the floor, he’s a go-to guy that is a high-level player. You can play with anyone in the country when him and Howard going, get their back line defense squared away, get some scoring up front; I think they’re going to be an NCAA Tournament team. I could see them playing into the second weekend. I really could.
