Neither Baylor nor Syracuse are strangers to NCAA Tournament success during this decade. For that reason, their matchup on Thursday in Salt Lake City promises to be one of the must-see first-round games.
The Orange made Final Four runs in 2013 and '16. They also reached the Elite Eight in 2012 and the Sweet 16 in '10 and '18. The Bears made a Sweet 16 run a year ago and in 2014. Before that, Baylor reached the Elite Eight in 2010 and '12.
