An Orange win on Sunday would be its first in Atlantic Coast Conference play.

A reeling Syracuse team hosts Miami on Wednesday at 7 p.m., looking for its first conference win after an embarrassing 96-81 loss to Boston College on New Year’s Day. The Orange (8-6, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) have lost its last two matchups against the Hurricanes (11-2, 1-0), and this one doesn’t look to promising on paper either.
