Syracuse Makes Claim for Tourney Spot [David Stefanini]

This from

The victory snapped the Hoyas' 11-game winning streak and gave the Orange a strong claim for the postseason.

Georgetown (22-6, 12-3 Big East) had won 11 straight conference games for the first time in school history and had defeated Pittsburgh 61-53 Saturday to avenge a road loss to the Panthers in January and take sole possession of first place in the Big East.
Syracuse (21-8, 10-5 Big East) has won five straight since dropping four of five.

To me, this puts Syracuse's destiny in their own hands. They have won five straight games during the most important part of the season, and tonight's 72-58 upset over #10 ranked Georgetown has culminated their push for the postseason. If they can keep up this wave of momentum they will certainly be playing in March.
