Syracuse basketball at Ohio State: 10 things to watch for (PS; Waters)

The Syracuse Orange (3-2) will face No. 16 Ohio State at the Value Center Arena in Columbus, Ohio, on Wednesday night.

The Orange enters the game in need of a win, especially one away from home. This is Syracuse's last non-conference game outside the Carrier Dome. The Orange has already suffered neutral-court losses to Oregon and Connecticut at Madison Square Garden.

Ohio State is off to a 6-0 start, including road wins at Cincinnati and Creighton.

This is the first meeting between the two schools since Ohio State beat Syracuse 77-70 in the NCAA tournament's East Region final in 2012.

Wednesday's game is scheduled to start at 7:15 p.m. on ESPN2.

Here are 10 things to watch for:

Syracuse vs. Ohio State: A Tale of Two Stories Thus Far – Orange Fizz – Free Syracuse Recruiting News (pranmgefizz.net; Singer)

Before the season, who would’ve thought that a Syracuse win on Wednesday would be considered an upset? Probably not too many people.

Well, since the season began, Syracuse and No. 16 Ohio State have not started so similarly.

The Orange comes in 3-2 with losses to Connecticut and No. 18 Oregon. On the flip side, the Buckeyes are 6-0 with road wins over Cincinnati and Creighton.

When it comes to playing on the road for Syracuse, the Orange is 6-14 in its last 20 away games.

SU will enter as 5-point underdogs in a matchup that truly doesn’t seem like a favorable one.

Ohio State ranks 8th in the NCAA in opponent field goal percentage (35.5%). Meanwhile, Syracuse is 321st out of 351 in field goal percentage (39.7%), and second-to-last in the nation in three-point field goal percentage (23.3%).

Ohio State head coach Chris Holtmann knows it can be a painful experience attempting to game plan and execute against Syracuse’s stifling 2-3 zone defense.

“It’s like going to the dentist. And not just for cleaning,” Holtmann said.

In today’s ever-changing and increasingly unpredictable world, college basketball fans can take solace in one constant: Whether you love it or you detest it, head coach Jim Boeheim and his Syracuse men’s basketball team (3-2) will trot out onto the court in its patented 2-3 zone defense.

The main challenge for Holtmann this week: Find areas of vulnerability and put together a game plan that best allows his undefeated (6-0) and No. 16th-ranked Buckeyes to penetrate a suffocating style of play.
