This is the 52nd straight time the Orange have beaten Colgate.

Oshae Brissett shot 7 of 12 from the field and 5 of 7 from the line to score 20 points on the afternoon. Combined with five rebounds, two assists, a block, and a steal in 40 minutes of playing time, the freshman forward did what he could to see Syracuse (8-1) beat Colgate (3-6) Saturday at the Carrier Dome.

Guards Tyus Battle and Frank Howard wouldn’t be outdone, scoring 24 and 18 points, respectively. The three players combined to score 62 of Syracuse’s 72 on the afternoon.

The Orange's 72-63 win over the Connecticut Huskies was the second game of the 2017 Men's Jimmy V Classic.

NEW YORK—A redshirt freshman overshadowed in previous games came out of his shell Tuesday night.

After the game, forward Matthew Moyer couldn't remember if he had hit a jump shot in any of his previous seven starts for the Syracuse Orange (7-1). But in this game, his career-high 18 points and eight rebounds propelled Syracuse to a 72-63 win over former Big East rival Connecticut

Seven years ago, Veteran Sgt. Andrew Clary's job was made for him: the bodyguard for the men's basketball team and Coach Jim Boeheim. Clary says his Air Force training has prepared him for the pressure of this position.

Sgt. Andrew Clary opens the door to his office wearing a 2016 NCAA Men's Basketball Final Four shirt. He sits at a desk covered in badges and coins collected from all the places he has traveled. On his wall hangs a signed Joe Montana picture, and lying next to it is his Syracuse basketball backpack.

Clary is in charge of special events for the Department of Public Safety at Syracuse University, which, among other things, makes him the traveling security guard for the men’s basketball team. More specifically, he is the security guard for Coach Jim Boeheim.

The players combined for 30 points in Syracuse's fourth win of the season.

Two Syracuse players had career-highs in points as the Orange defeated Oakland 74-50 Monday night.

"Our defense was good the whole game," Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim said.

The sophomore guard took over with 16 points in the second half.

The Syracuse Orange (3-0) defeated the Texas Southern Tigers (0-4) 80-67 to win their third straight game to open the season, while extending the Tigers’ losing streak.

If there was ever a question of who the Orange could trust if their leading scorer, Tyus Battle, wasn’t in the game, that question got answered in the first half: Geno Thorpe.

Battle’s career-high in points proved to be crucial in Syracuse win.

The Syracuse Orange (2-0) were certainly tested by last year’s MAAC champions, Iona Gaels (0-2), but grabbed their second win 71-62.

Whereas Syracuse was able to pull away in their season opener against Cornell, that was not the case on Nov. 14. Leading 32-28 at halftime, Iona kept themselves in the game with scrappy play. Their matchup zone defense posed problems for the Syracuse side, which turned the ball over 15 times.
