5th-seeded Syracuse Orange automatically advanced through the first round with a bye.
The last time these teams met back on February 16th, Syracuse defeated Seton Hall on the road in the Prudential Center, 76-65.
Orange key player for the match is junior forward C.J. Fair due to his ability to score from anywhere on the floor and being that he is the best jump-shooting option for Syracuse.
Pirates' key player is also a junior, guard/forward Fuquan Edwin, who is the team's leading scorer and reason why they advanced to this match with the Orange, scoring the final six points for Seton Hall to force overtime and then scoring the four points that separated Seton Hall from South Florida to win that game.
