Syracuse Basketball is going to the Sweet 16! The Orange have been a surprise so far in the tournament, and members of the team say they’re not done surprising people.

A lot of people didn’t even think Syracuse should have been in the NCAA Tournament. But now, the Orange - the 11th seed - is heading to the Sweet 16 after a big win over Michigan State - the three seed - on Sunday, 55-53.

Few people saw this happening; Syracuse was the last team in the tournament, now three games in - and three games. Their zone A defense is a big reason why, as the Orange held Michigan State to a season low 53 points. And Syracuse says this is just the beginning.
