The Orange look to make it 4 wins in a row tomorrow at noon.
Syracuse has beaten Wake Forest, Florida State, and most recently NC State to climb to 6-4 in the ACC and 14-9 overall.
The win over nationally ranked FSU, followed by their first win away from the Carrier Dome against NC State midweek, has revived SU’s NCAA Tournament hopes, and another home scalp of a Top 25 Virginia team would give them another big boost.
Virginia has won 6 of its last 7, though, with their only loss in that span coming on the road against Villanova.
If the Orange are able to come away with a victory, it’ll be either Jim Boeheim’s 899th career win or his 1,000th, depending on who’s keeping track.
According to the NCAA, it would only be Boeheim’s 899th career victory, but either way a win over the Cavaliers would give the Orange 15 for this season and add another marquee one to an ever-improving NCAA Tournament resume.
