Countdown to Football Frustration

Next Frustrating Hoops Victory

Next Lacrosse Annihilation

It's unbelievable, but Syracuse pulled out a close game.
Syracuse finally was playing a team that wasn't in the top 25. And Syracuse returned to the Dome. Could Syracuse win a game that was, in fact, winable? Yes. And it was a close game but Syracuse held on to a thin lead and won the game 81 to 76.

  • Andrew White went off for 27 points and he was a perfect 10-10 on free throws.
  • Taureen Thompson came in second with 18 points on 7-10 shooting. He was also 4-7 from the free throw line.
  • Tyler Lydon had a solid game of 15 points and 9 rebounds. He was 2-2 on free throws, and 3-6 on 3s.
  • Syracuse and Wake were pretty even in terms of shooting but Syracuse had the slight edge. Oddly enough, Wake had a better free throw percentage, but Syracuse had more and made them when they mattered.
  • Syracuse played Lydon, Battle, and White for all 40 minutes of the game.
  • Tyler Roberson only played 7 minutes, but he put in a lot of effort in those 7, despite a couple pretty serious lapses in judgment on defense. That being said, he had a big block, and one that was clean but was called for a foul.
  • At this point in the season, you would think Syracuse would look for the opposing player lurking around the baseline waiting for a quick pass for the easy 2.
  • John Gillon didn't add much in this game. He didn't score. But he did distribute the ball better than Frank Howard, who is not as good as Gillon.
Syracuse earned a tough, close win. Something we all needed to see. And definitely a win the team needed.
