Syracuse and Maryland improvement

Looks like Syracuse is going to go into the 2006 season with a whole new team in terms of there play. They are a large step up from last years dissapointing season and it seems very likely that Syracuse fans will see another run to the final four along with the magic number back on the field. There freshman are impressive and played pretty well in this game. Yevoli will help a lot too. Maryland also looks great, they are returning most of last years starters including walters, mcglone and alford. Look for Maryland and Syracuse to have very good seasons this year and most likely a meeting in the final four. It is shaping up to be another great season.
