Syracuse vs Marquette: Key Matchup
Jerel McNeal vs Eric Devendorf

Coming off a horrible game against Rutgers, Eric will look to regain his swagger and more importantly his stroke Saturday at Marquette. Eric shot a miserable 1-8 from deep against Rutgers and will certainly need to dramatically improve on that if he intends to get the better of this matchup. Shooting 37% from three and scoring 15.4 ppg’s, the Orange need Eric to get back on track before they head to NYC for the Big East Tourney.

McNeal will really have to shoulder a bulk of the load if Marquette is going to get back on track. Since losing Senior leader Dominic James for the season, the Golden Eagles have lost three in a row. Jerel averages 19.9 ppg, 4.7 rebounds, and 4 assists per game as a do it all guard. This will be his last game ever in front of the home crowd, so look for him to be extra jacked for this game.

Should be a dynamite matchup.
