Orange’s defense is its only offense

That was probably the most boring 6-point game I’ve ever watched Syracuse play. The Orange led wire-to-wire, it was never closer than 10 points from 14:23 in the first half until 4 minutes left in the second, and yet there was only a brief period where Syracuse actually executed well on offense. It has been the story of the season for Syracuse. The defense was tremendous but the offense had serious issues and the only thing that saved them was the points in transition, which of course, is a product of the defense.
