Here are the five keys that would allow the Orange to sweep its first season series with the No. 5 Blue Devils.No. 1 C.J.’s slumpThe last time C.J. Fair faced Duke, he played the best game of his career. Fair took over in the second half, hitting anything and everything en route to a career-high 28 points. Since then, though, he’s been dreadful. Fair is shooting 35.4 percent in the last five games, including a 7-for-23 performance in SU’s 62-59 overtime loss to Boston College on Wednesday. If the Orange is to pull off the upset in Cameron, it’ll need a rejuvenated and efficient senior leader.No. 2 Duke’s 3-point shootingThis season, Jim Boeheim has played most opponents to take 3-pointers. It’s a dare of sorts, but the Blue Devils aren’t most opponents. With four marksmen who connect on more than 40 percent of their 3-point attempts, Duke can shred the Orange from beyond the arc. Andre Dawkins (4), Rasheed Sulaimon (4), Tyler Thornton (3) and Rodney Hood (3) spearheaded the Blue Devils’ efforts from long range in the first matchup as the team ultimately finished 15-of-36. The Orange guards and wings will have to close out quickly to keep that quartet from a repeat outing.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNo. 3 Jostling with JabariThe Orange handled Jabari Parker well on Feb. 1. Boeheim kept his centers back to shade Parker on the baseline while playing off Amile Jefferson in the high post. The result was a frustrated Parker, who scored 15 points but fouled out late in regulation. This time, Parker could see more time in the high post. If that’s the case, Boeheim will need to adjust accordingly and bring Rakeem Christmas or Baye Moussa Keita forward.No. 4 Center playSpeaking of the centers, Christmas will be relied on for a bounce-back performance after the BC game. Christmas is likely the best post player on the court and will need to play like it for SU to win. He blocked Parker three times (including a nasty denial in transition) in the first matchup, but if Parker is moved to the high post, he’ll have to do a lot more to not only keep the sensational freshman in check, but also to stay out of foul trouble. With Keita playing only two minutes against the Eagles, it’s likely he’s still far from 100 percent.No. 5 Closing strongThose four keys and any other factors aside, the success of this Syracuse team is built on efficiency in the final five minutes. That’s how SU has won about half of its games this year. But against Boston College, and even N.C. State before that, the Orange hasn’t turned into the well-oiled machine that beat Duke once and Pittsburgh twice. No matter what else happens in the first 35 minutes, if Syracuse doesn’t play its best ball in the final possessions, it can’t win. Comments
Vicky Boodram, who escaped prison pending a trial for fraud charges, has been recaptured. Police in Trinidad and Tobago have recaptured 35-year old businesswoman, Vicky Boodram, who escaped from the women’s section of the Golden Grove Prison on Monday evening while awaiting trial on more than 100 fraud charges.A brief police statement said that Boodram had been found at a house in Penal, to the south of the capital – Port of Spain on late Thursday. A 32-year-old female occupant of the house was also detained and faces charges of harboring a fugitive.Seen at a fast-food restaurantPolice said residents claimed Boodram was seen earlier during the day eating at a doubles stand. She had been recognized by a member of the public and alerted the police.There has been much speculation as to how Booram had been able to walk out of the prison in the company of two police officers late on Monday night.Media reports Friday said that an unidentified man who reportedly fell in love with Boodram is said to have assisted in her plot to escape from the prison.One newspaper said that the man had frequently visited her at prison and as their relationship grew, he ‘allegedly could not stand to see his love incarcerated and began to devise a plan for her to escape”.Earlier this week, the Acting Commissioner of Police, Stephen Williams ordered an investigation which is currently underway into the circumstances surrounding Boodram’s release.Two police officers who took at least 10 minutes to remove Boodram from the prison are assisting the police in their investigations.Arrested on 175 fraud chargesBoodram had been on remand since March 2016 after being denied bail on 175 fraud related charges. She is facing the fraud charges linked to failed cruise ship packages offered by the company, Travel and Ship Ahoy Cruise Limited. She is a director of the company.Her estranged husband, Ravi Arjoonsingh, was also charged with collecting millions of dollars from 109 people through fraudulent means and transferring the money to himself and the company in 2010.In addition to the fraud charges, Boodram is also facing two charges of money laundering after she allegedly purchased a TT$629,000 E-Class Mercedes-Benz and a two million dollar house using forged documents.
