Syracuse hits the road to start ACC play with a trip Blacksburg to take on Virginia Tech. The Hokies are one of four teams the Orange plays home-and-homes with in league play. The others being Boston College, Duke, and Pittsburgh.
Steve Addazio couldn’t have asked for a better first season at Chestnut Hill. The Eagles exceeded expectations in nearly every way en route to a 7-5 regular season, returning to respectablity after the dismissal of Frank Spaziani, who went 21–29 from 2009-12.
During a season in which Syracuse often relied on shutting down opponents from three-point range in the second half to come back to win, that result finally reversed itself on Wednesday, as Boston College made 9-of-14 triples after halftime to claim a 62-59 overtime win at the Carrier Dome.
Tuesday night, for the third time in their first four ACC games, #2 Syracuse took on a former Big East opponent and, for the third time in those four games, emerged victorious, beating Boston College on the road, 69-59.
