No. 8 Syracuse plays No. 9 Baylor in the NCAA tournament's Round of 64 on Thursday at 9:47 p.m.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Syracuse men's basketball team announced news that impacted NCAA Tournament brackets everywhere. Forward Freddie Gillespie is the only big who plays significant minutes for Baylor, and he will have to stay out of foul trouble in this game.

Howard was caught on camera seemingly trying to trip up Williamson, who was playing in his first game since returning from a Grade 1 right knee sprain. He became embroiled in controversy when he appeared to stick his foot out as Blue Devils star Zion Williamson ran by.

Tennessee Titans Trade For QB Ryan Tannehill
He's 42-46 as a starter with a 62.8-percent completion rate, 20,434 passing yards, 123 touchdowns and 75 interceptions. For the Titans , they've been looking for multiple seasons to find a top-end backup as injury insurance for Mariota.

A senior from Maryland, Howard started 28 games for the Orange this season, averaging 8.9 points per game and a team-high 2.9 assists. But if the Orange limit second-chance opportunities, they have the upper hand elsewhere.

Howard stepped up when Tyus Battle missed the ACC tournament with a bruised hip, scoring a combined 46 points while shooting 50 percent from the field against Pitt and Duke.

"It's a tough situation to be in", Battle added, "but we as a team, I know we're going to pick up the slack and we're going to be ready to play". I thought the players made a great adjustment. The Bears lost their final three regular season games, then dropped their Big 12 Tournament opener to Iowa State. If Baylor is going to win this game, they are going to have to make a ton of shots.
