This Syracuse Orange starting guard is suspended ‘indefinitely.’ Watch your bracket

No word yet whether or not he will play in later rounds of the NCAA tournament. The NCAA Tournament Odds for the game have the Orange favored to pick up the win here. The Syracuse Orange (20-13, 10-8), are locked in as an eight seed and will play the Baylor Bears (19-13, 10-8) tomorrow at 10 pm in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Battle said players did not find out about Howard's suspension until the school released its statement roughly 10 minutes before the team was scheduled to be on the floor for practice. A first-round exit would look much worse for Syracuse than Baylor.

The Baylor Bears will try to end a four-game losing streak Thursday night against the Syracuse Orange in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Howard started 28 games for the Orange this season, averaging 8.9 points per game and averaging almost 27 minutes on the floor per night.

The is the third all-time meeting between Syracuse and Baylor with the Orange having won both previous matchups, in the 2006 and 2013 regular seasons. The senior guard poured in 28 points in the team's ACC tournament game against the Duke Blue Devils. "That's what - we know who we are going to play this game with, that is all we are focused on". Based on what Tyus Battle and Oshae Brissett said on Wednesday during media availability, the SU players had learned of the news recently.

"It is very similar to last week when we found out Tyus wouldn't play".
