The Cardinals were scheduled to face the Orange at 7 p.m. in the Carrier Dome on Wednesday in a game that would have given SU a chance to improve its status on the NCAA Tournament bubble.

It would have been an opportunity for Syracuse to pick up a win considered a Quadrant 2 victory by the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee. Right now, the Orange (10-5, 4-4) have just two wins considered Quadrant 1 or 2 victories.

The Cardinals hosted Georgia Tech on Monday, earning a 74-58 win. Syracuse last played on Saturday, earning a 76-73 home victory over North Carolina State.

The next game Syracuse is scheduled to play is now on Saturday, when the Orange is scheduled to visit Clemson. The Tigers beat North Carolina at home, 63-50, on Monday night. That will be a Quadrant 1 opportunity for the Orange.
