The UNC Greensboro Spartans and the Syracuse Orange will both be gunning for a victory on Tuesday when they meet at Carrier Dome.

ABOUT UNC GREENSBORO (25-9): The Spartans tied for first place in the Southern Conference with a 14-4 league mark and played Virginia, Wake Forest and Georgetown in non-conference play – losing in a blowout fashion to the Cavaliers and Hoyas. Greensboro led by seven at halftime in its tournament title game and still had a chance to tie in the final seconds before Francis Alonso’s 3-pointer rattled out. Alonso, who scored 28 points thanks to five 3-pointers, is the team’s leading scorer (15.2) and is a terrific long-range threat at 47 percent on 215 attempts.

ABOUT SYRACUSE (18-14): The Orange have four double-digit scorers and all four have made at least 48 3-pointers, plus all four shoot at least 79.5 percent from the foul line. Andrew White III (18 points per game) leads the way and has scored 62 points without committing a turnover in the last two games. Syracuse is 3-0 all-time against Greensboro but has dropped five of its last seven games overall and continues to receive very little production from its reserves.

Oddsmakers currently have the Orange listed as 13-point favorites versus the Spartans, while the game’s total is sitting at 149.

If Tuesday’s NIT first-round matchup between Syracuse and UNC Greensboro was not intentionally scheduled, it certainly is an awfully big coincidence. One week after Orange coach Jim Boeheim jabbed the city of Greensboro, his top-seeded squad will host the eighth-seeded Spartans, who have all the motivation they need heading into this contest.

“When we saw that Syracuse was the first No. 1 seed and we were the eighth seed in the same bracket – we thought it was pretty obvious it was directly related to Coach Boeheim’s comments about the city of Greensboro,” Greensboro coach Wes Miller told reporters this week. Boeheim, meanwhile, believed his team belonged in the NCAA tournament but instead will have to settle for a matchup with a Spartans team that won nine straight before falling in the Southern Conference tournament title game. Syracuse fell to Miami (Fla.) in the second round of the ACC tournament in Brooklyn, N.Y. and then Boeheim quipped afterward, “There’s no reason to play in Greensboro.” The Orange defeated Virginia, Duke and Florida State this season but ultimately were doomed by having won just two road games, not to mention some ugly non-conference defeats.

Last time out for Syracuse, they were a 62-57 loser as they battled Hurricanes at home. They failed to cover in the match as a +2-point underdog.

UNC Greensboro was a 79-74 loser in its last match at home against Buccaneers. They earned a push of the +5-point spread as underdogs.
