This is a game for those who love long-distance shooting. Mississippi State has connected on 45 three-pointers during its last three games highlighted by a program single-game record 19 treys during the Clemson game on Dec. 8. The Bulldogs have hit 10 or more treys in three straight games on five occasions since the 2004-05 season.
Was it a fluke, or was it a sign of things to come? That’s what Syracuse fans must be wondering after the Orange were upset 68-62 by Old Dominion last Saturday. Now they face Buffalo in a bigger challenge.
The Wildcats will be hoping to put Saturday’s loss behind them as they take on a solid ACC opponent. Despite being separated by just 65 miles, Davidson and Wake Forest haven’t met on the hardwood since the Wildcats’ 54-49 overtime win on Feb. 2, 2000 at Belk Arena.
