Orange set for Ohio State

By MIKE LEVIN

BOSTON, MA (WKTV) - It will be a tough battle for Syracuse when they take on Ohio State the Elite 8 Saturday night.  The Buckeyes boast some of the nation's best and most hyped players, but the Orange know that the team that wins will be the one that works the hardest.

"This is the toughest team we've played yet." says James Southerland, the Orange sophomore guard. "They have a great low post scorer in Jared Dillinger, inside out guy in William Buford and Desean Thomas, great point guard in Aaron Craft. Just prepare and do what we need to do to stop them."

If they win, it's off to New Orleans and the Final Four, the same place Jim Boeheim's team won it all back in 2003.  But first they need to take care of business against the Buckeyes. Tipoff is schedule for 7:05 p.m.
