Beat writers predict Syracuse to remain undefeated against Texas Southern

first_imgSyracuse (2-0) takes on Texas Southern (0-3) Saturday night in the Carrier Dome at 7 p.m. The Orange is coming off a 71-62 win over Iona while the Tigers suffered an 18-point loss to Ohio State. Tyus Battle led all scorers once again with 28 points against the Gaels, while Frank Howard and Oshae Brissett chipped in 15 and 12, respectively. Paschal Chukwu led the way on the glass with 10 rebounds. Our beat writers make picks and discuss Syracuse’s third game of the season.Sam Fortier (2-0)Southern ComfortSyracuse 80, Texas Southern 60The most interesting thing that will happen on Saturday night in the Dome is that we’ll get to see Syracuse big man Paschal Chukwu square up in the post with TSU big man Trayvon Reed. They are both 7-foot-2. Other than that, the Tigers have just two players taller than 6-foot-4 and both are role players who aren’t on the court more than 30 percent of the time. All this said, Syracuse has a size and skill advantage that won’t be overcome.Matthew Gutierrez (2-0)Eye of the TigerSyracuse 62, Texas Southern 58Texas Southern is no slouch. Based on Syracuse’s performance Tuesday night against Iona — an NCAA Tournament team a year ago, granted, but no ACC power by any stretch — this matchup figures to be close. The Tigers are accustomed to big-time basketball and have made four consecutive NCAA Tournaments. SU and TSU play even until the final minutes.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTomer Langer (2-0)More of the sameSyracuse 74, Texas Southern 56These two teams matched up two years ago. The only player left from that game is Frank Howard as both teams have had major turnover. And with that, Texas Southern doesn’t seem well-equipped to beat this Orange team. Yes, SU has seemed to struggle on offense without a Tyus Battle bailout, but that might still be enough against TSU. Through three games the Tigers are shooting 42 percent from the field and 32 percent from deep. That won’t cut it on the road against a team like SU.

Windies improving – Charles

first_imgSHARJAH, United Arab Emirates (CMC): Power hitter Johnson Charles has described the West Indies as an improving side, with less than a week before the start of the ICC T20 World Cup in India. Charles played a brilliant match-winning knock as West Indies beat Zimbabwe by 10 wickets to win their two-match T20 Series 2-0 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Monday night. The powerful opener smashed 92 not out off just 48 balls with six big sixes and 10 boundaries to be named Man-of-the-Match. “Tonight (Monday) I had a good batting pitch. The ball was coming on nice. Not much sideways movement. I just decided to stick to what I know. I am a power hitter so I did just that,” Charles explained. “We have moved from strength to strength. From the first game we have been improving in this game we have improved a lot more. We just look to improve as the games go by and hopefully we can go into the World Cup with everybody in form and we could win this World Cup,” he said. Windies motored to a victory target of 154 without loss after the Zimbaweans made 153-7 off 20 overs. The best bowler was seamer Carlos Brathwaite with 3-23, which helped to restrict the innings after a solid start. Charles’ opening partner, Andre Fletcher, made 56 not out off 35 balls with three sixes and five fours, on a good batting surface. “We are best friends and we come from the same team,” said Charles. “We always speak to each other at the wicket and keep complimenting each other. We just motivated each other to do the best that we can.” The St.Lucian cricketer was a member of the West Indies Cricket team which captured the T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka four years ago. He was not named on the original squad, but was called up as a replacement for Darren Bravo, who pulled out citing the need to focus on developing his game in the longer format. “I just see it as me coming back for my place and that’s just how I see it,” said Charles. “With that said everything is left to the Almighty Father and that is what he saw as fit and that’s what happens. So I am just going to do what I have to do now that I am here.”last_img read more
