The Syracuse Orange hosted the twelfth-ranked Louisville Cardinals in an ACC men’s basketball showdown on Wednesday night.
Coach Jim Boeheim’s squad was able to keep it close in the first half — the Orange trailed by four at the end of the first — and stellar team defense limited Louisville to only 27 points after half-time and triumphed by a final of 69-59.
In particular, this massive block from Syracuse’s Michael Gbinije seemed to ignite a fire under Boeheim’s boys.
You’ve got to take advantage of those types of opportunities.
