This week we discuss the heartbreaking loss at Villanova in Philadelphia on Saturday and discuss if there is any chance for this team to maximize their potential and turn around their season heading into 2015. Also, an interesting fact about former Orange great Pearl Washington.
The Syracuse Orange survived a late rally from Louisiana Tech in the Carrier Dome on Sunday evening to snap a 2-game losing skid. How happy are Syracuse fans with the win?
