A month ago, it didn’t seem possible, but Syracuse basketball is in the NCAA Tournament.

The Orange got an 11-seed and did get to skip the play-in round. They are in the Midwest Region and will face San Diego State in their first game.

West Virginia is the 3-seed in Syracuse’s pod and will be the likely second round opponent for SU.

This is the 41st NCAA Tournament appearance for the Orange and their first since 2018.

Syracuse will learn their game day and time later on Sunday night.
