Joe&Brix Break Down Syracuse With Insider Brent Axe(AUDIO)
After starting the season 25-0 -- and being ranked number one in the nation -- the Syracuse Orange basketball team has lost three of its last four games. The latest? Their worst loss of the season, 75-56, to No. 12 team in the nation and ACC-best Virginia Cavaliers Saturday night.
If Syracuse can win out they still have a chance for a first round bye in the ACC tournament. Two games remain in the regular season.
If Syracuse expects to get a two or three seed in the NCAA tournament it's a must that they win out AND make it to the ACC semifinal at least. Anything less than that and we may see the Orange's 25-0 start earn them nothing but a four or five seed.
Listen in here as Joe & Brix had friend of the show, Syracuse sportswriter Brent Axe on to talk about the Orange. Brent breaks down the current state of Syracuse's team, the Jim Boeheim Duke blowup and Wichita State being a contender.
