Orange Try to Advance to Final 4 of Loser's Tournament

Syracuse plays UMASS tonight at 7pm at the Carrier Dome on ESPN with the winner advancing to the Final 4 of the NIT / Loser's Tournament next week at Madison Square Garden. The Orange are 1-2 this season at MSG and lost at home to UMASS earlier this season after Marcus Camby had a career game...actually Camby hasn't played at UMASS since 1996, the last time UMASS was a competitive program. Special shout out to Carmelo Travieso, the most exciting player on that Minutemen team with Camby and second greatest college basketball player named Carmelo. The winner of the game will face off against either Arizona State or the national champion from the past two seasons, the Gators from Florida. Winning the NIT Tournament would be a nice consolation for a very talented Orange team that lost two integral members to knee injuries early in the season.
