Joseph Girard III absolutely stuck it to his former school Syracuse on Saturday afternoon in the dome.  He had 18 points including several clutch buckets late.  It was another big win for Clemson and yet another bad loss for Syracuse hurting their NCAA Tournament chances.  I love how Joe plays and the fact that fans and students would boo him after all he gave the team and the program is awful.  Below is my quick take on this as seen in the Times Union:

I thoroughly enjoyed watching Glens Falls phenom Joseph Girard III torch his former team on Saturday at the JMA Wireless Dome in Syracuse and shame on the Orange fans who booed him for making a good choose to finish up his career at Clemson. Girard scored 18 points and was 4 for 5 from three-point range and reminded Syracuse fans of what they are missing this season. Girard had a great four-year career at Syracuse and helped them win a lot of games but JG3 wanted to make the NCAA tournament in his final year of eligibility. Clemson will make the NCAA tournament and Syracuse will not. Case closed.

Clemson has to finish strong in the ACC Conference overall in order to make the tournament.  They have a great team led by JG3 and big man PJ Hall and they could cause some big problems if they do get in.  ESPN's Joe Lunardi had them as high as a seven seed in his latest Bracketology.  It will be an important final month for both Clemson and Syracuse as this is the stretch that either makes or breaks you.
