March Madness 2010:16 Vermont - 1 Syracuse Final

March Madness 2010
16 Vermont vs 1 Syracuse
West Regional
Final score 79 Syracuse 56 Vermont

Five years ago Vermont shocked Syracuse in the first round but this time Syracuse used a balanced attack and didn't have any problems beating them. Five players for Syracuse scored in double figures being led by Wes Johnson and his 18. Syracuse really focused on running a solid zone defense and ran it pretty perfectly in the win. On offense the Orange shot the ball well making 10 of 22 three pointers and 54.5% overall from the field. One not so great stat for Syracuse is they committed 16 turnovers which is not the mark of a 1 seed versus a 16 seed. Syracuse plays Gonzaga in the second round of March Madness 2010 and we picked them to win that game in our bracket and will keep that pick. We still like our pick for Syracuse not to make the Final Four as we still don't see it happening and the Big East is proving to have been a bit over rated this year.
