The Syracuse Orange and the Pittsburgh Panthers will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Petersen Events Center.

ABOUT SYRACUSE (16-9, 8-4 ACC): The 6-7 White (17.6 points, 4.6 rebounds) has been the catalyst for the Orange during their spurt, averaging 25 points, four 3-pointers and 5.2 rebounds while shooting 48 percent from the floor, 42 percent from the arc and 89 percent from the line. Other than his 23-point performance in a 66-62 win over the Cavaliers last Saturday, the 6-6 Battle (10.3 points) has struggled, scoring 30 points on 10-of-33 shooting in the other four games during the win streak while playing between 33 and 40 minutes in each game. Lydon, perhaps the most valuable player on the team, averages 14 points on 50 percent shooting, 7.8 rebounds, 1.4 blocks and 1.6 3-pointers per game.

ABOUT PITTSBURGH (13-11, 2-9): Senior forward Michael Young (20.8 points, 7.1 rebounds) scored 19 of his 30 points in the second half against the Eagles, and is shooting 28-of-47 in his last three games after going 14-of-54 in his previous four. Senior guard Jamel Artis, who entered the Boston College game as the ACC’s leading scorer at 20.7 points per game, had only six points after spraining his right ankle 19 seconds into the game. Either Young or Artis have led the Panthers in scoring in 50 of the past 57 games, including 23 of 24 contests this season.

Bovada Sportsbook currently has the Orange listed as 1.5-point favorites versus the Panthers, while the game’s total is sitting at 148 according to GTBETS.

Pittsburgh won its last outing, a 83-72 result against Eagles on February 08. They covered in that game as a -2.5-point favorite.

Last time out for Syracuse, they were a 82-81 winner as they battled Tigers on the road. They covered in the match as a +3.5-point underdog.

Three weeks ago, Syracuse wasn’t sure it would qualify for the NIT postseason tournament, let alone the Big Dance. However, coming off their most exciting victory of the season, the Orange can again dream about a NCAA Tournament invite as they seek to extend their season-best winning streak to six games when they travel to Pittsburgh on Saturday.

Freshman Tyus Battle, who had just one hoop all night, drained a 3-pointer at the buzzer Tuesday night as Syracuse bounced back from a nine-point, second-half deficit to beat Clemson 82-81. Andrew White scored 23 points, while Tyler Lydon finished with 17 and nine rebounds as Syracuse came back from a double-digit deficit for the third time during the current winning streak, which included a win over No. 15 Florida State and another over 13th-ranked Virginia. “If we let go of this game, there’s a chance we let go of our season,” White told “We don’t know how the chips are going to fall toward the end of the year. We need every game. I went into this game, last game and the two before that assuming that our season was on the line.” While Syracuse is soaring, Pittsburgh snapped an eight-game losing streak with Wednesday’s 83-72 win over Boston College.
