Syracuse is the best team in the Big East

In a strong Big East (despite preseason thoughts that it would be down), to me it looks like Syracuse is the class of the conference.

I know, they sit half a game behind Villanova entering day, with a 7-1 mark compared to Villanova's 7-0, but I think they are the better team. They routed Georgetown 73-56 last night to improve on this mark, and are undefeated on the season save for a lone loss against overachieving Pittsburgh.

Everyone thought this would be a down year for the Orange (myself included), after the loss of Johnny Flynn, Paul Harris, and Eric Devendorf, but this looks like Jim Boeheim's best team since the one that featured Carmelo Anthony. They have been efficient shooting the basketball, and are outscoring opponents by about 19 PPG.

The star has been Wesley Johnson, one of the most athletic players in the country. He averages 17 points and 9 rebounds per game for the Orange, leading their very balanced attack. They have 5 players that average in double figures, and 8 that average at least 6.5 PPG. They have a lot of different ways to hurt you.

But the biggest difference this season is how active and athletic their zone has been. Instead of sitting back in the 2-3, they can get out and challenge shooters and ballhandlers. This aspect was sometimes missing over the past few years. It is a big factor in why I think Syracuse is the best team in the Big East and one of the best teams in the country, with a good chance to win the national title.

Even I thought that Syracuse would be down this season after losing a few of their key starters. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect the Orange to be off to this kind of start. They completely dominated a very good Georgetown team last week, and I got to see them do likewise at MSG earlier in the year. With Johnson, Onuaku, Joseph,
and Rautins, this could very well be the best team Boeheim has had since 2003 when they won the national championship with the likes of Melo, MacNamera, and Warrick.

Outstanding observation about this year's utilization of the 2-3 zone contributing to the team's success. I still worry about SU being knocked out of the tournament by a hot team that pose a threat from beyond the arc. The tourney's still a long ways away, though... there's still a competitive BE schedule to be played!

They do look impressive but don't you have to keep that LeMoyne loss in the back of your mind when March comes? Any Cinderella they face will know that they can be beaten, even if they're a 1 seed. Though they do look impressive right now...

There are so many different pets to choose from too! Whether you are getting a pillow, a backpack, a pair of slippers or any of the other great items, you'll have a hard time deciding which adorable pet to choose. With the expanding line, it's easy to get an entire package of one pet to really make a child beam with joy. They are all perfectly complimentary to each other. Though I love our Pillow Pets, I'm secretly wishing for a Pillow Pets Blanket for myself for Christmas. Of course, I may share it with the kids. Or, I may just have to get one for all of us!
