The No. 1 Orange may be undefeated, but they know they are not invincible. They have been in their fair share of tough games thus far this season and they know this will be another one.
"Every game we have in this league is difficult," coach Jim Boeheim said. "We've been in tough games. We know it will be tough. We like to run, but people are going to do what they've been doing. We can't force tempo if someone wants to do this (slow the pace)."
As for the Panthers, they have played down to their level of competition in some games. They know they must become more consistent in order to contend for a championship.
"You don't want to lose to teams you're supposed to beat," Lamar Patterson said. "This team just figured out a way to grind it out and that shows big growth. That will be helpful down the line once it is tournament time."
