By earning a No. 3 seed, Syracuse will act as a host team and play games in the Carrier Dome up until the Sweet 16 round. They will host Fordham, No. 6 South Dakota State, and No. 11 Quinnipiac for the first two rounds before the tournament shifts to larger regions, and in Syracuse’s case, potentially to Portland, Ore. for the Sweet 16. Mississippi State is the 1-seed in the region, while Oregon is No. 2 and basically gets to play at home for the Sweet 16 and Elite 8 should they get that far. Syracuse lost 75-73 at Oregon in the second game of the season and SU would obviously welcome a rematch.
