Kris Joseph and Kayla Alexander Look to Put Syracuse Into Next Weekend Today

A pair of great Syracuse players are looking to help extend their team's seasons with big wins today to push them into next weekend's round of games ...

Here is where the men are playing today ...

NCAA

7:05pm Ohio State vs. Syracuse - Syracuse eked by Wisconsin on Thursday and it looks like Ohio State will be no different. The Buckeyes are playing some good ball leading up to this game and without Fab Melo in the middle, the Orange will need to put up big numbers from the perimeter. With that being said, I'm not sure if Kris Joseph will be a factor in this game despite the fact that his slashing skills are going to be needed. In the Tournament, and throughout the year, there seems to have been a move to not get him the ball in the game for long stretches. If this keeps up in this game, I don't know if Syracuse can pull this one out. Joseph was 3-of-8 from the floor in the game on Thursday for 11 points including 0-for-1 from the free throw line with 2 rebounds in 39 minutes. Not exactly the numbers you want to see from your senior leader.

And here is where the women are playing today ...

2:00pm Syracuse @ Toledo - Kayla Alexander dropped 29 points, 10 rebounds, 6 blocks and 2 assists in 31 minutes on Temple in Syracuse's 82-68 win this past Thursday in the WNIT. Will she put up the same numbers against Toledo today?
