Tough road for SU with 6 games to go
Thu, 10 Feb 2011 03:49:29 GMT —
I t's hard to believe the 12th-ranked Syracuse Orange basketball team only has six games left until the Big East Tournament.
While Wednesday's loss to #11 Georgetown was obviously disappointing, it's an even tougher pill to swallow when you look at SU's schedule down the stretch. Three tough road games against Louisville, Villanova and Georgetown will be an obvious challenge, although the Orange almost seem to be more comfortable on the road these days.
The SU basketball team seems to be following in the footsteps of the football team this past season, having lost their last three Big East games in the Carrier Dome. West Virginia is the next home game on Valentine's Day, with Dome games against the Rutgers and DePaul to round out the home schedule.
Remaining regular season schedule:
Sat, Feb 12 - @ Louisville Mon, Feb 14 - West Virginia Sat, Feb 19 - Rutgers Mon, Feb 21 - @ Villanova Sat, Feb 26 - @ Georgetown Sat, Mar 5 - DePaul
