I guess this response is for hoat, mrsure and obviously kjh... The Cuse is very good especially now that Carter-Williams looks like the real deal, but they never go on the road in the early season and only did this year because they thought they'd be the only carrier game.
Speaking of that one, they won because SDSU couldn't make a shot from outside. You can certainly argue it was the Cuse length in the 2-3 that did it, but I think the elements played a big part. Arkansas shot the ball well last year from beyond the arc and the second year of Mike Anderson's 40 minutes of hell should be much improved and more dangerous.
Boeheim likes to have his kids push it in transition and Brandon Triche can certainly do it, just not sure about MCW as a transition PG because I haven't really seen him in action. Arkansas will run as often as possible and they were a good 3pt shooting team in my opinion last ear, especially at home. They've had some chemistry stuff go wrong leading to BJ Young's suspension for the opener (best player), but he hasn't missed a beat. He dropped 29 the other night in a loss and losing both in the mini tournament did surprise me. This makes me think they'll be very hungry and the Cuse is walking into a lion's den at Bud Walton arena.
My guess was Cuse -3 so the number seems very large in my estimation. I want to see where it goes, but I would not advocate a play on the Orange tonight whatsoever. Not sure I want the Hogs, but I'm looking at it
