    No. 1 Syracuse has seemingly made a habit of escaping during ACC play, with Tyler Ennis, C.J. Fair and company making the plays needed to remain undefeated down the stretch in close games.

    At this point in the season, Doug McDermott is the clear favorite for National Player of Year and, in the eyes of most observers, the guy that everyone would want taking a shot with the game on the line.

    When Syracuse announced its decision to move to the ACC back in September 2012, there were a couple match-ups that the program hoped would carry over as non-conference games. The Orange set up home-and-home series with St. John’s and Villanova, and at some point (we hope) they’ll resume on-court hostilities with Georgetown. On Saturday afternoon…
