The first game of the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament kicks off tonight at 7:15 PM EST in the East Region between the #1 seed Syracuse Orangemen (33-2) and the #4 seed Wisconsin Badgers (26-9) at the TD Garden in Boston.
Expect a lot of three-pointers to be attempted in this game. All of the starters for the Badgers have 3-point range. Syracuse plays in its patented 2-3 zone. The Orangemen will have to really close out on shooters.
When Syracuse has the ball, they must figure out how to use their athelticism to score points on Wisconsin's solid man-to-man defense.
Instead of settling for bricks, the Orangemen must take advantage of mismatches by taking their man off of the dribble.
