Syracuse Only Inches Away
Syracuse continues to make a move on Buffalo's first place status in this seasons Golden Snowball race. The lead has narrowed to 8.2 inches. On another note Rochester has started to make their move also, winning this last snow bout and finally making it over the 1 foot mark. A milestone that on a normal season would have been hit a long time ago. This weekend could be interesting and the current standing could change like the wind does.
Most of us are under a lake effect snow watch so keep an eye on the weather if your traveling. A chance of some snow late tonight but the pros are thinking some of the heavier snow could hit some of us starting late Friday thru late Saturday so check your favorite weather station to see what's going on.
Go Syracuse and I'm not talking weather. What a game last night even if they did blow a 19 point lead that they held at one point. They played one of the best first half's I have seen them play in a while. Unfortunately Cincy chipped away at it kind of like we are doing to Buffalo's lead in the snow race. We still romped them, errr beat em up, ummm, ok we barely won by a point with great defense on the last play of the game but it was a win and I like the way the team is playing team ball. Devo is giving the ball up great this year and will probably more than double his assists from last season which is making a huge difference, Watkins has stepped up and looks confident under the basket, Nichols is having an awesome season, Terrence has come off his injury with no problems, Rautins is starting to drop them in the bucket and the list of positives goes on for all of the players. Harris is starting to find his spot on the team. So what if we blew a big lead! We always do and I'm use to it by now. Just think how boring the games would be if we blew out the competition every game. Our guys do it on purpose because they don't want us getting bored. What a thoughtful bunch of players we have when you come to think about it. That said I'm really liking this team and I think they will get even better as the season goes on.
