The 2014 NCAA tournament field has officially been announced and March Madness is upon us. Teams from all over the country are going to do whatever it takes to to be a part of history as they go for the championship. Make no mistake about it, Syracuse will win it all and here are five reasons why!
Head coach Jim Boeheim knows all about what it takes to win it all. Remember, Syracuse already had one of the longest streaks in team history this season and even though it fell a bit towards the end, another streak is brewing. Expect Boeheim to get his team motivated to make start a new amazing winning streak going straight to the championship game.
The only reason Syracuse started to lose games and look sloppy towards the end was due to its inconsistency on offense. It struggled big-time and had to come from behind and rally to win close games against teams in overtime. Look for Syracuse to tighten its offensive schemes and always go for the easy baskets to strike early. Once it gets the lead in any game, it will make sure to keep ahead of the competition.
It's imperative that Syracuse continues shutting down other teams when it comes to defense. As long as it continues to use its trap strategy on opponents to create steals, it should easily add more points on the board. Syracuse will win it all by being smart and more importantly, aggressive on defense. Syracuse will create turnovers galore and in turn, convert these into great scoring opportunities.
Tyler Ennis has had an incredible year with Syracuse despite his slump towards the end of the season. Look for Ennis to be reborn and return to his high scoring and energetic style of play. He will be playing on a whole new level with Syracuse and take it all the way to the championship game!
It all starts on Mar. 20 against Western Michigan. If Syracuse is to start another winning streak, it needs to make a statement to every team in the NCAA that its means business. It should easily rout Western Michigan and begin what will be one of the most memorable seasons in the history of Syracuse men's basketball!
