Eighth-seeded Syracuse fell to ninth-seeded Miami, 62-57, in the second round of the ACC tournament Wednesday afternoon. The Orange were down by eight at the half, but roared back, eventually taking the lead on a Tyus Battle 3-pointer. Andrew White led all scorers with 22 points and went 1-of-6 from 3. With the loss, the Orange’s NCAA Tournament status remains in question. Our beat writers Connor Grossman and Matt Schneidman discuss the loss and what it means for the Orange’s chances.
