Syracuse drilled Colgate at the Carrier Dome on Monday Night finishing off the Red Raiders 92-58.
The win will go down as a total team effort for the Orange. Five players scored in double figures, and Brandon Triche and Andy Rautins each had nine. Meanwhile, Scoop Jardine had 3 points and 8 assists.
The game was over early as Syracuse controlled things from the opening tip. Wesley Johnson hit a pair of three pointers early, on his way to a 20-point performance as he continues to impress. The Orange is now 7-0 and will face Maine on Saturday Night.
There wasn't much new to be learned about the Orange in this one. In fact, it might have actually been a somewhat lackluster performance. Still the Orange led 47-16 at the halftime intermission against a team that led UCONN at the break earlier this season. Syracuse played man-to-man defense in the second half, and that seemed to help Colgate a little bit.
Still, the Orange got what it came for a good convincing win and will move on to the Black Bears this weekend. That should be another game to see a lot of people in.
