Syracuse men's basketball (20-12), No. 8 seed in the West, opens its NCAA Tournament Thursday night with a first-round game against the Baylor Bears (19-13), No. 9 seed. When asked whether or not Howard would play if Syracuse advances to the next round, coach Jim Boeheim declined to answer.

Battle missed the ACC tournament with a hip injury, but he is expected to return Thursday.

Battle said players did not find out about Howard's suspension until the school released its statement roughly 10 minutes before the team was scheduled to be on the floor for practice.

Howard was just named to the ACC Second Team All-Tournament team one week before his suspension. They face a small Baylor team that normally sends out a starting center at 6-foot-8, yet the Bears are the second-best offensive rebounding team in the country. He's now played his final college game. Replays appeared to show him sticking his foot out as Duke's Zion Williamson went by, but he said he was not trying to intentionally trip the Blue Devils star, who stumbled a bit but regained his balance and was otherwise not affected. The difference maker, which is why Syracuse will pull away at the end, is the height differential - SU is the tallest team in the country, while Baylor sits at No. 143.
