THE BUZZ: Indiana State is not a good offensive team; the Sycamores have one player, G Dwayne Lathan, who averages in double figures. Indiana State wins with sticky, aggressive defense. But the Sycamores aren’t that big, and Orange F Rick Jackson – the only player in the Big East who averages a double-double – should have a big day. Syracuse has had some defensive issues this season, but the Orange will have to be extremely lax on defense to lose this one. Indiana State can be sloppy with the ball, and Syracuse should have success in transition.
