Watching the Orangemen’s first tournament game yesterday it was very apparent that the intensity of the teams play had augmented on both sides of the ball.

Tyler Ennis hit a jump shot with the score 2-2 to take the lead and Syracuse never looked back. 43 rebounds and big production from their offense.

So how deep into the tournament will this team go? They face a less talented Dayton team that have come off an upset win. Saturday at 7:10pm in Buffalo.

If these guys can stay healthy and focused on both offense and defense, they could go back to the final four once again.

I certainly liked what I saw on Friday afternoon, they looked like a group with a will to win. Go Orange!
