Syracuse Pre-Game: B5Q Grills Nation of Orange

In a special expanded edition of B5Q's Pre-game Grill series, we team up with Syracuse blog Nation of Orange to breakdown the East Region's 1 vs 4 match up.

Syracuse's Melo ineligible; East region up for grabs?

4

RPI guru Jerry Palm says the loss of sophomore C Fab Melo would have dropped Syracuse to a 2-seed if the committee had known about Melo's postseason ban. Wisconsin remained a 4-seed (albeit in Kentucky's South region) in Palm's re-imagining. SI's Luke Winn also examined the impact of Melo's absence. As it is, UW and Vandy have a great opportunity in the East region. The Orange are still good without their defensive anchor, but fell to Notre Dame during Melo's earlier 3-game suspension. Syracuse is more than mortal. No. 2 seed Ohio State has to be licking its chops as well. Maybe, just maybe, Bucky has finally gotten luck on his side in the Big Dance.
