SYRACUSE: Last season: 23-14, lost in the Sweet 16 of NCAA Tournament
Nickname: Orange
Coach: Jim Boeheim, 43rd season
Conference: Atlantic Coast
Who's gone: F Matthew Moyer transferred after his redshirt freshman year and graduate transfer G Geno Thorpe left the team after six games.
Who's back: G Tyus Battle, the team's leading scorer last season (19.2), decided to return for his junior year after testing his NBA chances. He'll be joined by sophomore F Oshae Brissett, who's coming off an impressive freshman season (14.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, 38 minutes), senior G Frank Howard (14.4 points, 4.7 assists), sophomore F Marek Dolezaj (5.8 points, 4.8 rebounds), and C Paschal Chukwu (5.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, 91 blocks). Also returning are: G Howard Washington, who's recovering from a torn ACL; F Bourama Sidibe, who had offseason surgery for tendinitis; and G/F Elijah Hughes, who had to sit last year after transferring from East Carolina.
Who's new: Boeheim welcomes a class that includes G Jalen Carey, F Robert Braswell, and Boeheim's youngest son, Buddy, a 6-foot-5 point guard who will wear No. 35, the same number his dad wore when he played for the Orange in the 1960s.
The Skinny: Last year Syracuse was picked in the preseason to finish 10th and pretty much lived up to the low expectations as injuries plagued a team that finished 8-10 in the ACC. But unlike the year before when Syracuse was the top seed in the NIT, meaning the Orange were the last team out of the NCAA Tournament, they managed to squeak in last March as the last team in and won three games to reach the Sweet 16, stunning Arizona State, TCU and Michigan State in low-scoring games before losing to Duke by just 4 points. This year's team is ranked 16th in the preseason poll, has the personnel to vie for a top spot in the ACC and, for a change, easily secure an NCAA Tournament bid.
Expectations: Las Vegas oddsmakers have Syracuse a long shot to win the NCAA Tournament, on par with Purdue and well behind ACC rival Duke and Kentucky, the top two favorites. ___
DUKE: Last season: 29-8, lost to Kansas in the Elite Eight.
Nickname: Blue Devils.
Coach: Mike Krzyzewski.
Conference: Atlantic Coast.
Who's gone: All five starters. Big men Marvin Bagley III and Wendell Carter Jr., and guards Grayson Allen, Gary Trent Jr. and Trevon Duval are all in the NBA.
Who's back: Not much. Center Marques Bolden, the team's leading returning scorer, averaged 3.9 points in less than 13 minutes per game while Javin Delaurier is the top returning rebounder at 4.0 rpg.
Who's new: The Blue Devils brought in the consensus No. 1 recruiting class and four of its members are expected to start. They're led by Canadian guard and preseason AP All-American R.J. Barrett and athletic freak Zion Williamson ' who at 6-foot-7 and 285 pounds has filled YouTube with highlight-reel dunks. Point guard Tre Jones is the younger brother of Tyus Jones, the most outstanding player at the 2015 Final Four for Duke.
The Skinny: It's title-or-bust again for Duke's latest crop of players with the potential to jump to the NBA after only one season in college. Krzyzewski has installed an offensive system that depends on the players' versatility and their court sense to make intelligent reads and decisions. That system helped the Golden State Warriors become an NBA dynasty, and Krzyzewski hopes it works as well with his talented group.
Expectations: The Blue Devils are favorites to win the NCAA Tournament at 5-to-1, according to Las Vegas oddsmakers.
Duke ready for Syracuse as both teams deal with injuries

Now it may be Syracuse that's short-handed for a matchup with Duke.

The teams meet Thursday night in the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament quarterfinals at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C.

Duke is expected to have freshman forward Zion Williamson back in action for the first time since Feb. 20, though no official announcement has come.

But Syracuse could be without scoring leader Tyus Battle, a guard who missed the Orange's 73-59 victory late Wednesday night against Pittsburgh.

Battle was out with a bruised back suffered Saturday at Clemson. It's likely he could miss another game, his coach said.

"He's probably realistically two or three days away from being able to play, I think," Jim Boeheim said, though he pointed out that the expectation earlier in the week was that he might be available for the tournament opener.

Fifth-ranked Duke (26-5) and Syracuse (20-12) split two regular-season games, with Syracuse winning 95-91 in overtime at Duke in a game when Blue Devils forward Cam Reddish was out sick and point guard Tre Jones missed most of the game with a separated shoulder following a collision with Syracuse's Frank Howard.

Williamson didn't play in the Feb. 23 rematch, which was won 75-65 by Duke at the Carrier Dome.

Williamson's return for third-seeded Duke is much-anticipated. Beginning with the first North Carolina game when he exited in the opening minute with a sprained knee when his basketball shoe ripped open, the Blue Devils are 3-3 in a six-game stretch.

"I think we'll get Zion back for Thursday," Krzyzewski said following Saturday night's regular-season finale at North Carolina. "The way he looks right now, I think it's just a matter of getting in shape, getting in game shape."

The Blue Devils have looked rather ordinary without the standout forward, who has averaged 21.6 points and 8.8 rebounds per game. He was in the news earlier this week when he was named the ACC Player of the Year.

"We view these games the same whether we have him or not," Jones said. "We don't know when exactly we will get him back, but as a team we have to keep playing and keep getting better for the postseason. ... It's win or go home and with or without him we have to keep fighting every game and keep trying to get better."

Krzyzewski said the Blue Devils should receive a significant boost from Williamson.

"We've been good, not real good, without Zion," Krzyzewski said. "The kids have fought, but it's inconsistent. It's not at the level that's needed to win a championship."

Duke still has weapons. Forward RJ Barrett, who averages a league-leading 23.4 points per game, and Reddish have been the primary scorers.

"Regular season just ended," Barrett said. "How we see it, it's 0-0 and we are going to go out and compete."

Krzyzewski said during the 18-game ACC regular-season schedule that the Blue Devils were at full strength for about half those games.

Now, they'll probably be without center Marques Bolden, who departed Saturday night's game at North Carolina with what was diagnosed as a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee.

Sixth-seeded Syracuse found the right combination to withstand 14th-seed Pittsburgh, with freshman guard Buddy Boeheim -- the coach's son -- making his first career start and scoring a season-high 20 points.

"His mother tells me he should be playing more all the time, every day," Jim Boeheim said. "But he has been well-prepared to be able to step up in this kind of game."

The Orange also received 18 points apiece from Frank Howard and Elijah Hughes.

"When you lose your best players, somebody has to step up," Jim Boeheim said. "These two guys did a great job."
