Former Syracuse basketball player Andrew Kouwe chats with Wes Cheng about the 2019 postseason. Andrew’s got a ‘sneaky good feeling’ that the Orange is poised for another deep NCAA run despite a mediocre regular season.
Here are the highlights from the show:
Wesley Cheng: Andrew, I always get a prediction from you, and I always enjoy it because you don’t sugarcoat things and you tend to tell it like it is. Your predictions are pretty accurate. So how do you see the ACC Tournament playing out, and how do you see hopefully the NCAA Tournament playing out?
Andrew Kouwe: I think ACC Tournament, just because all the teams know Syracuse, my guess is that we get that first win against Pitt. I’m not too optimistic after that. I think there could be a little let down after that win. I don’t know why, but I have a sneaky good feeling about the tournament because of Frank Howard, Oshae Brissett and Tyus Battle because they’re veterans and because they’re big up front in the zone. We have to win games like 65-61. I do have a good feeling we can grind those games out and make a little bit of a run and make it to the Sweet 16. And then, who knows from there? It depends on who we face.
