Could be a tough game tonight. Last year, Seton Hall beat the 'Cuse by 22.

Syracuse has been giving up a ton of offensive boards this year, and Herb Pope is one of the best rebounders in the country. Even though they're not ranked, Seton Hall is 7th in the unofficial RPI rankings.

Looks like some Big 12 teams have inched up the RPI, and are in the top 65. Baylor is fourth and Kansas State is 20th.

That will never happen to Syracuse!

Please. Syracuse plays in the Big East. The strongest basketball conference in the last 7-8 years. They can lose to anyone in the Big East. A few years ago when Syracuse went unranked in the beginning of the season to number 1, defeated many top ten teams along the way as well as many top 25. Syracuse's schedule overall is much harder than Ohio State, so I don't really know where your coming from..Ohio State doesn't have much competition in the Big Ten. So I fail to see what you are trying to prove. At this point has Ohio state had the tougher schedule? Yes. Going forth til the end will their schedule be as tough as Syracuse's...Absolutely not. Syracuse for their first 10-12 games plays mainly in the state. That's not their tuff part of the schedule. Although, they did beat a decent Florida team ranked in the top ten at the time.

As a Syracuse fan, I could juggle chainsaws for a decade and still count on one hand the number of times Syracuse has scheduled a non-conference true road game against a perennial power like Kansas. It's just not Boeheim's way!

Great, Syracuse has solved the free throw shooting bugaboo and now they can't rebound worth a lick.

Rakeem Christmas may be our best natural rebounder but probably won't get major minutes because he hasn't learned to do other things.

I hope some people got to see Kansas spank Baylor on Monday. This is supposed to be KU's down year but here they are in the top 10 again. Hopefully they keep the momentum going on the road this weekend at Texas.
I don't know if they are a final four team but if Thomas Robinson and Tyshon Taylor keep playing like they have been then it's a possibility.
