Graduate transfer tallies 40 points on senior day as Orange top Yellow Jackets, 90-61.

For a few minutes, it looked like Georgia Tech (17-14, 8-10) was going to give Syracuse men’s basketball a taste of its own medicine. Syracuse had a 12-point lead at halftime – an advantage that was as large as 16 points with over a minute left in the first half. But, this time it seemed as if the Yellow Jackets would be the second half comeback team.

After a Ben Lammers layup, a Tadric Jackson made jumper, a 3-pointer from Quinton Stephens, and a layup from Josh Okogie, Georgia Tech cut the Syracuse lead to just three points, 38-35, with 17:40 left to play.

Orange's losing skid hits three after 71-65 loss to Yellow Jackets.

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team fell at Georgia Tech on Sunday, 71-65. Taurean Thompson recorded 14 first-half points and Syracuse led by as many as nine in the game’s opening 20 minutes.

But, Georgia Tech (16-11, 7-7 ACC) began the second half on a 10-3 run and SU (16-12, 8-7 ACC) never regained the advantage. The two teams will face each other again in their regular season finale on March 4 in the Carrier Dome.
