Syracuse Basketball: Second Straight Start For John Gillon

The Syracuse basketball team has opted to start John Gillon for the second time in as many games. What does that mean for the rest of the team?

Historically speaking, Syracuse basketball head coach Jim Boeheim doesn’t mess around with the starting lineup. He’s changed it already three times this season, would tonight make it four?

No is the answer to that question. Is it because of production? The stat sheet would say

otherwise. Gillon finished 4-of-14 for 13 points and was unable to make the impact the Orange were hoping for on Saturday against Georgetown.

But can you blame Boeheim for going to Gillon? After his 23 point offensive explosion against BU, Boeheim tried to capture that offense on the front end of the game and it didn’t pan out.

That magic didn’t translate, but maybe it will tonight against an easier opponent. To know how to watch and listen to the game here is all the information you’ll need! I’ll have you covered on the radio side for TK99 locally in Syracuse.
