BOSTON, MA (WKTV) - The Syracuse Orange are all ready for their Sweet 16 matchup with Wisconsin.
Defense will be key when top-seeded Syracuse takes on fourth-seeded Wisconsin in the East Regional semifinals on Thursday night.
"It's a great challenge to play against this team," says head coach Jim Boeheim."Because they're so solid on both ends of the court, they don't make any mistakes. This will be a big challenge for our team."
It's also an amazing opportunity for them to play in such an historic basketball town like Boston. "It's great. This is a great opportunity we're going to have a lot of fans." says senior guard Scoop Jardine. "We know the alumni base is really heavy here, so for the most part we're playing home. We're going to have our fans supporting us. Playing in Boston's always great. Hopefully we can get wins here."
Game time on Thursday is set for 7:15 p.m.
