ACC play kicks off today as the Orange of Syracuse come to Coral Gables to take on Miami.
Anytime the Cuse is in the house, it means lots of 2-3 zone.
UM will need sharpshooters Sheldon McClellan and Davon Reed on top of their games.
The key figure for the Orange might be their own outside threat, Trevor Cooney.
Cooney is inconsistent but dangerous when he's on.
Enjoy the game, Canes fans.
