You already hate Syracuse. And we already gave you five good reasons to hate this particular Syracuse squad.
But if for some reason you’re not already camped out in front of the Verizon Center, we’ve got a refresher on what you should be yelling at the players in Orange. Take Andy Rautins to task for defecting to Canada, remind Rick “Trash Man” Jackson that his nickname is also the only job his Syracuse education will qualify him for, and remember to avert your eyes when Arinze Onuaku shoots free throws.
The Hoyas will need everything you’ve got. Not to say every game against ‘Cuse isn’t a must-win, but normally it wouldn’t mean too much in the big picture if Georgetown lost to a top-5 team. Normally, however, the Hoyas wouldn’t have lost to Rutgers. Syracuse is very, very good, and they’re extra hungry coming off a loss to Louisville, so Georgetown will be in for a battle. But there’s no better Orange team to hate (and beat) than a good one.
