Syracuse to face Western Michigan University

Created: 03/20/2014 7:30 AM WHEC.com

The Syracuse orange took a trip down the Thruway to face their first opponent in the NCAA tournament.

Tip-off against Western Michigan University at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo is this afternoon.

Many of the Syracuse players tell us they expect orange fans to fill the seats and while they like that, it doesn't mean it will be an easy win. Freshman Tyler Ennis says the team has to go out and earn the win.

The game is scheduled to start at 2:45 p.m. We will have highlights on News10NBC at 5 and 6.
