Orange defense forces 20 BC turnovers in 76-53 win at the Carrier Dome.

On New Year’s Day, Boston College picked apart Syracuse’s 2-3 zone and cruised to a 15-point victory in its ACC opener. When the teams met again on Saturday afternoon, the roles were reversed.

The Orange (11-7, 3-2 ACC) locked down Boston College at the Carrier Dome, forcing 20 turnovers and registering 11 steals. The Eagles (9-9, 2-3 ACC) shot just 39.6 percent from the field and the Orange pulled away early in the second half, coasting to a 76-53 victory. SU has now won three of its last four.

The Orange buckled down in the closing minutes of each period in order to prevail against a relentless Army side to remain unbeaten.

Following their statement victory against Albany last weekend, Syracuse (3-0) started off this contest rather sloppy.

The Orange pulls away from the Big Red in the second half for its eighth win of the year.

It was a tale of two halves.

After coming off an ugly loss to St. John’s last week, Coach Hopkins stressed two points to his team in their return to the Carrier Dome: play positive and don’t fall behind early.

Although the first 20 minutes were filled with poor shooting, careless turnovers, and sloppy interior defense on both sides, Syracuse managed to lead by 4 at the half mainly due to aggressive play and strong rebounding. The second half was a completely different story.
