The Syracuse Orange (11-1) look to take down the St. Bonaventure Bonnies (9-2) in the Carrier Dome at 7 p.m. Friday night.
The Orange's best player so far this season -- sophomore G Tyus Battle -- was limited in a heart-racing win over Buffalo in Syracuse's last contest. Battle, who averages 20.7 points per game, only dropped 13 in the game. They will look to get him going in this one.
St. Bonaventure features a dangerous duo of guards in Matt Mobley and Jaylen Adams. The 6-foot-3 Mobley averages 18.4 points a game, while the 6-foot-1 Adams is averaging 17.2 points so far this season. These two seniors are going to be a problem for Syracuse if they can't match up well, especially on the perimeter.
With the Orange barely getting past the Bulls in their last contest, they will be sure to look for a hot start and dominate on their home court.
