FINALS WATCH: Aircraft carrier vs. Georgia Dome

ATLANTA (AP) — Syracuse forward James Southerland downplays the difficulties of shooting at the Georgia Dome.

“It can’t be worse than a ship,” Southerland said after practicing at the dome in preparation for the Final Four.

The Orange play their home games in the smaller Carrier Dome but opened the season against San Diego State in a game played on an aircraft carrier.

Mr. Southerland is about to find out which is tougher.
