Syracuse Orange (23-7 SU, 15-11 ATS) at Georgetown Hoyas (23-5 SU, 14-10 ATS)
Syracuse has revenge on their minds after being embarassed at home
Georgetown's Otto Porter was dominant in the first game with 33 points and had 28 against Rutgers
Georgetown's 11-game losing streak was stopped at Villanova and they don't want to go the Big East Tournament on a losing streak.
Keys to Success: Syracuse has to do find a way to stop Porter. Syracuse leading scorer Brandon Triche averaged 10 points in his last four games. He has to get out of a scoring slump for the Orange to have a chance.
Last game: (2/23/13) Georgetown (+7.5) over Syracuse, 57-46. Syracuse is going to the ACC and Georgetown to the Catholic 7/America 12 so who knows when these teams will play again?

Isaiah Austin is a 7-footer that can contend with KU's Jeff Withey in the paint.
Kansas is shooting for a top seed in the NCAA Tournament
