Syracuse can overcome their offensive inefficiency, which is scoring the basketball, with a 2-3 zone defense can gives teams fits. Michigan State had no idea how to attack the zone, but Duke certainly will on Friday night. If Syracuse is going to beat Duke and advance to the Elite 8, and I give them a punches chance, they need an above average night shooting. They can’t struggle from the perimeter and win, because Duke will score points than Michigan State did, and they have more offensive weapons. Duke has more talent than any of the 16 teams remaining.
