No. 12 SU scores 10 second half goals to beat No. 11 Cavaliers at the Carrier Dome.

A Nate Solomon goal opening the half for Syracuse (3-1, 1-0 ACC) was answered with Virginia goals from Dox Aitken and Zed Williams (2 goals, 1 assist), and at the 11:06 mark in the third period, the Orange was trailing, 10-5.

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.

In their tenth overall meeting and first since 2006, the Orange jumped to a quick lead on a goal from captain Taylor Gait, her third of the season.
