Orange excited for big game
ATLANTA (WKTV) - It's game time for the Syracuse Orange as they prepare to take on the Michigan Wolverines in the Final Four in a matter of hours.
Friday, the Orange took the court at the Georgia Dome to get a feel for the raised surface and get a sample of what the atmosphere will be like.
Syracuse is a team that's seen its share of ups and downs, but they've made it this far and are capable of winning two more, including the National Championship.
Guard Brandon Triche said, "It feels so sweet. For a team that's probably been the least chance team to actually get there, I think it's just been an incredible experience."
Junior forward C.J. Fair said, "It's very exciting. Just making it to the Final Four is a great accomplishment. To a lot of critics, we were supposed to lose first round. For us to be one of the teams still sticking around is big. I think it's just been an incredible experience."
Sophomore Guard Michael Carter-Williams said, "The experience has been great. We've had an unbelievable time here. I've had the experience of a lifetime, things I'll never forget. Being with the team experiencing it has been amazing."
The Syracuse Orange will face the Michigan Wolverines around 9:00 Saturday night, following the first game between Wichita State and Louisville, all on CBS Sports.
