CENTRAL NEW YORK -- Fans who couldn't make the trip to Greensboro gathered to watch the game at local bars and restaurants.
And while they're disappointed with the outcome, those we spoke with are still hopeful for a good end to the season.
"Sweet 16. I can't wait. I'm very optimistic with my team, and I'm going to pull all the way," said Darek Dreher, SU fan.
"I think they'll have a better outlook, knowing now that they have to be a little more serious and a little more focused to be able to win these games," said Anthony Deverso, SU fan.
The NCAA Selection Sunday show airs on CBS at 6 p.m. this Sunday.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Before heading into the Coliseum there weren't many Syracuse fans in Greensboro thinking the Cuse would struggle with NC State.
However the Orange got all it could handle and then some.
NC State came to play and took advantage of a poor shooting night by the Orange.
The Wolfpack would hang on for a 3 point win.
And there's more disappointment than just a bad shooting night Friday.
Perhaps more about the way the SU's early season success has diminished.
