Not only have the Syracuse Orange demolished lesser competition to advance to the regional semifinals, but so has the City of Syracuse in the Weather Channel’s “Toughest Weather City” 2013 tournament. We defeated Roanoke, VA and their piddly 20 inches of annual snowfall in the first round of the Northeast bracket and got by storm-blasted Nantucket, MA in the second round. Now we face off against our regional rival Buffalo; it’s like Duke vs. UNC except colder. Voting is open tonight until 4AM so get yourself on there and show those Western New Yorkers how we do it on the I-81 corridor.
Interestingly, Marquette, WI has also made it to the Sweet 16. Hmmm.
