ESPN Matchup Prediction: Syracuse has a 35.4% chance of winning.
series history: Syracuse is 3-1 all-time against Richmond and is currently on a three-game winning streak. However, the most famous matchup was the first in the series and is one that Orange fans would like to forget. It happened in the 1991 NCAA tournament when the Spiders became the first 15 seeds to beat a two-seed. Since then, the two programs have taken place in 1999, 2002 and 2008. Two were in the Dome while one was in the NIT. Syracuse was victorious in all three of those matchups.
Live Stats: SHORTCUT
Syracuse enters the 2022-23 season in a situation it wasn’t before under Jim Boeheim. Back from a lost season. The Orange finished the 2021-22 season under .500 for the first time in more than 50 years and completely redesigned the roster in the off-season. While veterans Joe Girard, Jesse Edwards, Benny Williams and Symir Torrence are all back, Syracuse have seven newcomers in the form of newcomers Judah Mintz, Quadir Copeland, Justin Taylor, Chris Bunch, Maliq Brown, Peter Carey and Transfer Mounir Hima. Syracuse won both of the Orange’s two exhibition games against Indiana (PA) and Southern New Hampshire, although neither win was particularly impressive. The regular season began with a win over Lehigh, a loss to Colgate, and a win over Northeastern.
Richmond opened the season 2-2 but will start Monday on a two-game losing streak. The Spiders opened the season with victories over VMI and Northern Iowa. This was followed by setbacks against Charleston and Wichita State by a total of five points. Richmond isn’t a particularly great offensive team, eclipsing 70 points just once in four games. The Spiders are led by 6-7 winger Tyler Burton, who is averaging 19 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. He shoots 38.5% from beyond the arc. The other shooter to worry about with is 6-5 guard Jason Roche, who is making 42.1% of his three-pointers. However, Richmond as a team only shoots 30.9% from the outside.
