Syracuse Orange defeated the Wake Forest Demon Deacons 78-70 in ACC play at the Carrier Dome on Sunday afternoon.

It was a low scoring first half full of missed shots and rebounds on both ends. Wake Forest (9-16, 2-11 ACC) and Syracuse (17-8, 6-6 ACC) both had 18 rebounds at the half with a score of 31-21.

DAYTON, Ohio — 'Cardiac Cuse' was the case Wednesday night as Syracuse beat Arizona State 60-56 in the NCAA First Four.

This was the Orange's first ACC tournament win in four attempts.

BROOKLYN-It was a total team effort. All starters scored in double digits and the team shot a combined 54.8 percent across the field. Yet, it was the defensive effort that mattered most. Contrary to the last meeting between these teams—when failing to guard the 3-point line cost them the game—Syracuse held Wake Forest to 20.7 percent (6-29 FGA) from beyond the arc tonight.

64 of Syracuse's 70 points were scored by three players.

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass.--A lack of offensive distribution hurt the Syracuse men’s basketball team in its hunt for the NCAA Tournament with an 85-70 loss versus Boston College.

The Orange (18-12, 7-10 ACC) needed to reveal its offense, which went missing in its previous game versus Duke University. With an opponent like Boston College (17-13, 7-10 ACC) they had the opportunity to do just that.

Syracuse's Oshae Brissett tied a career-high with 25 points in loss.

In a game with 42 combined fouls and 34 turnovers, this was not a pretty affair by any means.
Syracuse (17-9, 6-7 ACC) held NC State (17-9, 7-6 ACC) in check from deep early on. After halting the Wolfpack following a 10-0 run at the end of the first half, it seemed to be anyone’s game.

Syracuse failed to control the pace of the game and NC State ended up shooting 54 percent from 3-point range in the second half. Coming down the stretch, the Orange could not come up with a stop and with 35 seconds remaining, NC State's Markell Johnson’s three iced the game.

The Syracuse Orange fell to the Virginia Cavaliers 59-44 in front of the biggest on campus crowd at a college basketball game this season. The Carrier Dome was filled with 27,083 fans to see the Orange take on the nationally ranked Cavaliers

Offense was the biggest problem on the afternoon for Syracuse against Virginia’s difficult defense. The Orange shot just over 33 percent from the field, while the Cavaliers shot almost 49 percent.

“That’s really the bottom line the last three games. We’ve had trouble scoring,” Coach Jim Boeheim said.

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.
