Syracuse shook off a slow start Tuesday then came back from 19 points down to beat Cincinnati, 55-53, to win the Orange's fourth straight game.

Syracuse carried a three-game winning streak into Cincinnati, but the game did not start out in SU’s favor. The Orange were able to respond though, as they turned a 19 point deficit into a two point win, beating the Bearcats, 55-53.

The Orange (20-6, 8-6) had one of their worst starts of the season, while Cincinnati jumped out to a 23-5 lead. The Bearcats were led by Shareese Ulis who made three early 3-pointers. Ulis was on fire from the start, and finished with a game-high 20 points. Kayla Cook and Jeanise Randolph also chipped in, with 13 and eight points, respectively.

Behind the play of Iasia Hemingway and Kayla Alexander, Syracuse shook off a poor shooting night and made just enough plays to beat Louisville Wednesday with a score of 54-45.

When watching the Syracuse women’s basketball’s game Wednesday night, it was impossible not to notice an Orange guard zipping around the court. She was seemingly everywhere at once, driving through players on her way to the net, throwing her body across the court to guard an open opponent. 

In a game of poor shooting percentage and low scoring, Iasia Hemingway’s grit was needed on both sides of the court. An exciting, back-and-forth game against Louisville, that Syracuse held on to win, 53-45.

DePaul used hot shooting from beyond the arc to beat Syracuse Wednesday, 77-61, and hand the Orange only their second home loss of the season.

In a span of eight minutes in the opening half, the Syracuse women’s basketball team went from being down nine points to leading by two. During that time, Orange players pounced on loose balls on the ground, snagged rebounds off the glass and scored from all locations on the floor.

But it was a tale of two halves for Syracuse against No. 10 DePaul Tuesday night at the Carrier Dome. Although they played some of their best basketball on both ends of the court in the opening half, the Blue Demons stormed back in the second half and trumped Syracuse by a score of 77-61.

South Florida had no answer for the Orange attack Saturday as Syracuse jumped out early and rolled to a 78-57 victory.

On the first play of the Syracuse women’s basketball game Saturday, guard Tasha Harris passed the ball to Iasia Hemingway waiting in the low post. Hemingway spun and shot the ball into the basket. It was a play that Syracuse repeated often with great effect.

Syracuse continued its dominance on the boards to beat Pittsburgh 69-60 at the Carrier Dome.

Entering Wednesday night’s game versus Pittsburgh, the Syracuse women’s basketball team was ranked first in the nation in rebounding margin. The Orange relied once again on their defensive prowess, as they  beat the Panthers 69-60.

Syracuse out-rebounded the Panthers by a 50-36 margin, in a game dominated by physical play. Four Orange players had eight or more rebounds each.
