Joe D's NCAAB ESPN SYR/UCONN Winner
Syracuse vs. Connecticut,
02/13/2013 19:00 EDT,
Score: 58 - 66
Point Spread: -4½/-105 Syracuse
Today's winner is Syracuse over Connecticut. This is my ESPN Winner.
Syracuse comes off of two Big East wins and covers over Notre Dame and St. Johns. The Orange took down the Huskies in all three meetings a season ago. They are the Conference's highest-scoring team and lead the Big East in both defensive 3-point % and defensive FG%. But the big difference here will be on the boards, where Connecticut is last in the Conference as Syracuse ranks 3rd. Brandon Triche will get his points and control the ball and having a healthy James Southerland back in the lineup will be huge for the 'Cuse. The Huskies have talent but can not and will not be able to compete on the glass here. The road team is 5-2 ATS their L7 meetings. Take Syracuse. Thank you.
