Syracuse’s game against Clemson, which was postponed on January 12th, has been postponed to March 3rd, said the Atlantic Coast Conference in a press release. It will likely be the Orange’s last regular season game before heading to the conference tournament in Greensboro, North Carolina.
A COVID-19 case in the Tigers program postponed the first meeting between the two programs since Clemson temporarily suspended basketball activities and removed matches against Orange and UNC from their schedule. The matchup on February 6, which Clemson won 78-61 at Littlejohn Coliseum, was the first meeting between the two programs this season.
The Tigers quickly built up a 20-point advantage over SU , with the Orange only scoring two field goals in the first half after Buddy Boeheim hit in first possession. Aamir Simms ’18 points led the Tigers while Nick Honor scored 15 points with five 3-pointers.
« If we do a few layups and just stick with it, it’s a 10, 12-point deficit, » said Jim Boeheim after the game. « You have a chance to beat it. But 20 is hard. »
With the rescheduled game, it means Syracuse will lose four regular season games due to postponements due to COVID-19 – two to Louisville and one piece against Florida State and Wake Forest. The Orange lost their last game against Duke on Monday night when the Blue Devils set them on fire behind the 3-point line on their way to an 85-71 win. The Blue Devils scored 13 of 29 shots from a long range, and Mark Williams double-doubled inside to limit the offensive and defensive impact of SU strikers like Quincy Guerrier.
Syracuse (13-7, 7th) -6 ACC) plays next Saturday when it comes to Georgia Tech (11-8, 7-6) and takes on the Yellow Jackets – a team that won two games in a row and lost to Clemson by two points in the game before.
