Watching Syracuse Dismantle Notre Dame

The Orange is on its way to dropping 50 first half points on a porous Irish defense. How? They're putting 4 guys on the floor that can all dribble, pass, and shoot. Harris, Flyn, Devendorf, and Rautins just flying around creating help and recover situations all over the floor exploiting the Irish lack of quickness. 'Cuse bigs are finding all the space they need to back down defenders and operate around the cup.

Personnel mismatches on the other end are mitigated by the zone. Beautiful basketball. They still shoot foul shots like the Stevie Thompson/Derrick Coleman squad, however.
