Jim Boeheim’s team seems to be sitting square on the bubble after Wednesday’s 62-57 loss to Miami in the second round of the ACC tournament. The Orange has six wins against teams in the BPI Top 50 – three coming against opponents that were in the AP Top 10 when SU won – but also a 2-12 record away from home and losses to Connecticut, Georgetown and St. John’s out of conference.Here are 10 games Syracuse should keep an eye on Thursday, with whom the SU fan should be pulling for in each.Illinois vs. Michigan, noon, Big Ten NetworkAfter a scary plane incident yesterday for the Wolverines, John Beilein’s team flew to Washington D.C. early Thursday morning for a noon tip against the Fighting Illini. Michigan is firmly in the field as a No. 9 seed, according to bracketmatrix.com, while Illinois is one of the first four teams out.Who SU should root for: MichiganAdvertisementThis is placeholder textUT San Antonio vs. Middle Tennessee, 12:30 p.m.Syracuse’s NCAA Tournament round of 32 opponent from a season ago has the best chance to get in of any mid-major, but to avoid the sweat SU needs the Blue Raiders to win the Conference USA tournament and prevent a bid-stealer. Getting by UTSA is the first step to doing that.Who SU should root for: Middle TennesseeIndiana vs. Iowa, 6:30 p.m., ESPN2The Hoosiers started off the year knocking off Kansas and reaching the top 10 but have since taken a nosedive. Now, Tom Crean’s team could play spoiler since its well on the outside of the field, while Iowa is bracketmatrix.com’s third team outside the field in between Kansas St. and Illinois.Who SU should root for: IndianaTexas A&M vs. Vanderbilt, 7 p.m., SEC NetworkThe Aggies 8-10 record during SEC play has it firmly outside the bracket, but the Commodores would presumably hurt Syracuse’s chances at squeaking into the field with a win in its tournament second round. Right now, Vandy is barely favored more than SU on bracketmatrix.com.Who SU should root for: Texas A&MXavier vs. No. 18 Butler, 7 p.m., Fox Sports 1Chris Mack’s team narrowly avoided disaster against DePaul in the second round of the Big East tournament Wednesday night, and now the Musketeers get a chance for a signature win that could solidify its berth in the field of 68. Bracketmatrix.com currently projects Xavier as a No. 11 seed, four spots overall above Syracuse but still close enough that a loss might make it a close call come Sunday.Who SU should root for: ButlerKansas State vs. No. 9 Baylor, 9 p.m., ESPNUThe Wildcats can firmly put themselves in the field with a top-10 win in the big 12 quarterfinal but also make the wait until Selection Sunday especially strenuous with a loss. Bracketmatrix.com has KSU as the second team outside the field, so it’s pretty clear who Orange fans should pull for.Who SU should root for: BaylorUSC vs. No. 3 UCLA, 11:30 p.m., ESPNThe Bruins are the No. 3 team in the nation and not even projected by most as a top-two seed. That’s how bad the Pac-12 was this season. USC’s 24-8 record with a 10-8 mark in league play has it resting uncomfortably on the bubble, and a win against Steve Alford’s squad would push it firmly into the field. A loss, however, may make things interesting.Who SU should root for: UCLAOther teams Syracuse should root for, but don’t need as badly:Tennessee – against Georgia, 1 p.m., SEC NetworkUtah – against California, 5:30 p.m., Pac 12 NetworkCreighton – against Providence, 9:30 p.m., Fox Sports 1 Comments
Martin O’Neill’s side require wins for Croatia and Cyprus tonight, while they also need Italy to prevent Norway from winning and for a draw between Turkey and Iceland.After the wins last night for Sweden, Slovakia and Slovenia, Ireland now look likely to be among the second seeds for the play-off draw, which takes place on Sunday.Wales are also among the teams in action tonight – despite having already qualified for next summer’s Championships, Chris Coleman’s side have a chance to top Group B if they win at home to Andorra and table-toppers Belgium slip-up at home to Israel. Kick-off in all of tonight’s qualifiers is at 7:45.
