Friday night on the hardwood will be a heck of a lot of fun for the SEC, as it has to contend with the Big East in the challenge that the league have against one another. The Razorbacks seem to be massively overmatched by the No. 15 ranked team in America, but we have reason to believe otherwise. Namely, that reason is G BJ Young. This kid is just out of this world, and though he is only a sophomore, he might be able to make a real name for himself on the national spotlight at home on Friday night. Young is averaging 20.5 points per game this year, and he was considered a true coup in recruiting when he started off last year in Fayetteville. Syracuse has itself a heck of a team once again this year, and though Head Coach Jim Boeheim always reloads instead of rebuilds, that doesn’t mean that it isn’t insanely difficult to figure out how to replace Fab Melo, Dion Waiters, Scoop Jardine, and Kris Joseph. Last year’s team overachieved, and it overachieved with all of these pieces in place. This year’s squad just shouldn’t be as good in all likelihood. That 4-0 start to the season has been great for the Orange, but they’ll fall flat on Friday night in Fayetteville in the biggest upset of the Big East/SEC Challenge.
