SU remains undefeated in the season with a 57-44 victory over Clemson Sunday.

The Syracuse Orange extended its best ever start to a season Sunday, defeating the Clemson Tigers 57-44. C.J. Fair bounced back after struggling in SU’s game against Notre Dame Monday, leading No. 1 Syracuse (23-0, 10-0) with 19 points over Clemson (15-7, 6-4).

In the Orange’s last game, Fair had just six points on 2-for-11 shooting. Tonight, though, he shot 8-for-13 to lead all scorers.

“It’s all about going to the next game,” Fair said. “You can’t dwell on a good or bad game.”

Miscommunication and other problems contributed to a 1-0 loss at home.

Syracuse (4-5-1) was looking for its first ACC victory in women’s soccer Thursday night against Clemson (5-2-2), but they would be denied in a 1-0 loss to the Tigers. The Tigers also snapped SU’s five-game home win-streak.

“Clemson’s a very athletic team, I can’t take anything away from them,” head coach Phil Wheddon said. “They had a game plan, they put us under a lot of pressure and we didn’t cope with it.”
