Home Away From Dome for Syracuse Orange Fans

Did You Know?

Posted by Josh on February 27, 2007

Going into tonight’s game:

  • Georgetown was 5th in the nation in scoring defense, giving up under under 57ppg.
  • Georgetown was 10th in the nation in FG% defense, with their opponents shooting 38.7% overall.
  • Georgetown was #2 in the country in FG% on offense, connecting on over 52% of their shots.
  • Georgetown had won their last 11 games by an average margin of 13. ppg.
  • Georgetown was entering the conversation as having a shot at a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Not in our house, bitches.

SU scored 72 on 44% shooting, while holding the Hoyim to 29.8%. Those are Esherick-esque shooting numbers there, guys. Did you bring back Kevin Braswell or something? Georgetown also turned it over 19 times, 5 above their average. Hell of a performance by the Zone Defense.

Check this sweet photo from the Daily Orange. I’m not a huge court-rushing advocate, but still, it had to be cool to be in this mix:

    I’d like to be the first to point out that this momentous turn of events (dare I call it a winning streak) all started when a certain former SU player in long socks showed up at practice…


    P.S. I’m even getting congrats from co-workers over this win!
