Syracuse University basketball fans are anxiously awaiting Selection Sunday to find out if the Orange will part of the NCAA Tournament.

SU’s loss to Miami in the second round of the ACC Tourney  didn’t help the teams chances of reaching the NCAA Tournament, although last year, the Orange made a surprise appearance and advanced to the Final Four.

The experts are split this year on whether the Orange will return to college basketball’s premier tournament.

According to Indiana University fan blogger Andy Bottoms – who is largely considered the most statistically accurate bracket expert – SU is in.

“I just think that where they are right now is so close to the edge,” Bottoms said. “It seems unlikely that someone wouldn’t pass them between now and Selection Sunday,” Bottoms added. 

Here’s what some other exerts are saying at this point in conference tournament play:
