Syracuse Defeats Indiana State, Will Play Marquette On Sunday

In this matchup of a 3 and 14 seeds in Cleveland, the Syracuse Orange fended off a challenge from the Sycamores of Indiana State and they won, 77-67 behind 23 points from Rick Jackson. The Orange struggled to put the MVC champions away until very late in the game as the day changed from Friday to Saturday. But now they will face on Big East rival Marquette, who upset Xavier, on Sunday and the victor will head to Newark and the Sweet Sixteen (complete round 3 schedule).
Gus Johnson and Len Elmore recap.
