Syracuse Advances to Sweet 16 with Win over Cal
Syracuse 66, Cal 60
The No. 4 Syracuse Orange were forced to travel over 3,000 miles out to San Jose for their first two games in the NCAA Tournament.
The Orange fought against that adversity and left the HP Pavilion with a berth in the Sweet 16.
Jim Boeheim's team were in the lead from the start against No. 12 Cal, who were playing less than 50 miles from their campus in Berkeley.
Syracuse made their foul shots when needed in the second half and booked a trip to Washington D.C. to play the winner of No. 1 Indiana vs. No. 8 Temple on Thursday at the Verizon Center.
