What TV channel is Syracuse-Michigan State basketball on?
Syracuse is the longest team in the country, as measured by basketball statistician Ken Pomeroy.
On the Air The game will air live on CBS, with Ian Eagle calling the play-by-play, Jim Spanarkel serving as the color analyst and Allie LaForce on sidelines.
That means that the Spartans will enter the game with six players who out-weigh Chukwu, who is listed as Syracuse's heaviest player at 228 pounds. Despite that, it was able to gain an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament out of the ACC. "They're physical. Probably not quite as physical as this". Sparty is by far the more talented team, but the 2-3 zone of the Cuse can be the great equalizer.
Tyus Battle had 17 points, Oshae Brissett scored 15, and 11th-seeded Syracuse zoned Michigan State out of the tournament, 55-53 on Sunday to advance to the Sweet 16.
The fact that the Bison pushed the Spartans to the limit can serve as another rallying point for the Orange.
The Orange fouled intentionally to avoid giving up a game-tying 3 twice in the closing seconds and the Spartans made two pairs of free throws to pull within a point both times. A start time has not yet been determined.
The 11-seed Syracuse Orange (22-3) kept their season alive after upsetting the 6-seed, TCU Horned Frogs, by a 57-52 margin this past Friday night.
Vince Edwards scored 12 points and picked up a third foul just 3 seconds before halftime. The Spartans are seeded No. 3 in the Midwest Region while Syracuse is No. 11.
Syracuse, meanwhile, has had a much harder road. Three of the Orange's players played 40 minutes, and there's no doubt that Tom Izzo will be looking to exploit that fact. Michigan State is easily the more talented team, but Syracuse is playing with nothing to lose. "And I think he's even better off the court".
People told me I was insane when I said that, but I really believed it.
"It's probably the saddest I've ever been in my life", Bridges said.
Syracuse faced No. 11 Gonzaga two rounds prior, whose head coach Mark Few had tallied 466 wins in his coaching career at the time. He'll likely be matched up with Michigan State star Miles Bridges, a 6-foot-7 potential draft pick with the body of a linebacker.
The Orange's average margin of victory in their last five games has been 0.4, down from 3.1 for the season. In total, Tillman totaled up the most post player minutes with 19, while Jaren Jackson Jr finished at 18 minutes and Nick Ward 17 minutes.
