Syracuse Basketball Takeaways From Loss to Georgia Tech

Syracuse failed to build momentum off their UNC win by dropping a very winnable game at Georgia Tech.


The Orange fell too in love with midrange jumpers rather than attacking the paint, leading to a stagnant offense.

Offense Sputters

Injuries have ravaged Syracuse’s roster depth which limits their full court press defense and other options. 

Lacking Depth 

Georgia Tech dominated the boards 49-28 including 12 offensive rebounds to close the game strong.

Rebounding Deficit

At 16-10 overall and 9-6 in ACC play, Syracuse likely needs to win out and make a conference tourney run.

Pressure's On

The Orange next face NC State on the road looking to revive NCAA tournament hopes with an ACC win.

Upcoming Schedule 

Syracuse needs to rediscover paint scoring, crash the boards better, and get healthy for the home stretch.
