After starting conference play with four losses, Syracuse beat the Eagles, 62-40 in the Carrier Dome.

Four players scored in the double-digits for the Orange as it was a dominant team performance that propelled Syracuse to its first ACC victory. Freshman Malachi Richardson recorded a game-high 15 points while going 6-6 from the foul line. Graduate Michael Gbinije tallied 14 points, six rebounds and four steals, and junior Tyler Roberson earned his third double-double of the season, hauling in 12 rebounds and scoring 10 points. Senior DaJuan Coleman joined the action tallying 10 points of his own.

Double-doubles by Christmas and Roberson not enough as Wolfpack pulls away in the second half.

Just one day after the NCAA levied significant sanctions against the Syracuse men's basketball program, the regular season came to a bitter end Saturday afternoon.

Rakeem Christmas scored 15 points and added 12 rebounds in his final game for SU, but it wasn't enough to keep N.C. State from handing the Orange a season-ending loss, 71-57.

Rakeem Christmas struggled in his final home game at SU against the top-ranked Cavalier defense.

Syracuse started strong defensively in Monday’s matchup with No. 2 Virginia, but it was the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season-champion Cavaliers that eventually dominated both ends en route to a 59-47 victory on Syracuse’s senior night at the Carrier Dome.

With the win, the Cavaliers clinched their second-straight ACC regular-season title, becoming the first program other than Duke or North Carolina to do so since North Carolina State in 1974.

The Orange shot a dismal 28 percent in the first frame and couldn't pull through in a very physical contest.

With Syracuse trailing by one point with 40 seconds remaining, Michael Gbinije saw Rakeem Christmas coming to the top of the key to set a ball screen. 

He saw Christmas set his feet, or so he thought, and decided to drive through the lane for a potential game-tying shot. But before he could get there, he heard a whistle. 

Illegal screen on the big man.

Key misses by Rakeem Christmas and Michael Gbinije down the stretch allow the Hurricanes to escape with another conference victory.

Syracuse was forced to erase a double-digit deficit against Miami twice on Saturday, and it succeeded both times with an array of contested three-point field goals and a yeoman’s effort in the paint by center Rakeem Christmas

But when presented with easy points at the free throw line, the Orange showed nowhere near as much resolve and let both comebacks go to waste.

The redshirt-junior's season-high 28 points propelled SU to its first ACC home win of the season.

During the opening weeks of the 2014-15 season, Trevor Cooney’s potentially lethal three-point stroke lay buried in a dormant slumber. 

But if there were any doubts that he would eventually find it again, Cooney erased them Sunday night against Florida State.

SU dominates in the paint en route to its best defensive performance in almost two years.

Syracuse pulled away to its fourth win of the season Tuesday night, defeating Loyola (Maryland), 70-37, at the Carrier Dome.

Although the 47-point victory might suggest the Orange’s offensive struggles are in the rearview mirror, head coach Jim Boeheim said that’s far from the truth.

"I thought our defense was good. That's it," Boeheim said. "Obviously, we have a long way to go on offense."

No. 4 Syracuse failed to score more than 63 points for the ninth consecutive game in the 67-62 loss to Georgia Tech.

Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim’s message after the game was short and simple: “We have to score,” he said. “That’s the problem.”

Coming off a brutal 67-62 home loss to Georgia Tech (14-16, 5-12 ACC), No. 4 Syracuse (26-4, 13-4 ACC) has not scored more than 62 points since its dramatic 91-89 overtime victory over Duke on Feb. 1. That win was over a month ago, and the Orange only averaged 58.4 points-per-game since then.

SU remains undefeated in the season with a 57-44 victory over Clemson Sunday.

The Syracuse Orange extended its best ever start to a season Sunday, defeating the Clemson Tigers 57-44. C.J. Fair bounced back after struggling in SU’s game against Notre Dame Monday, leading No. 1 Syracuse (23-0, 10-0) with 19 points over Clemson (15-7, 6-4).

In the Orange’s last game, Fair had just six points on 2-for-11 shooting. Tonight, though, he shot 8-for-13 to lead all scorers.

“It’s all about going to the next game,” Fair said. “You can’t dwell on a good or bad game.”

The Orange are still ironing out all the wrinkles, but continued a balanced attack in SU's 81-46 victory.

In its final tune-up before the start of the regular season, the Syracuse Orange defeated the Ryerson Rams 81-46 Tuesday in the team’s second and final exhibition game. The Orange boasted an extremely balanced attack, with 11 players seeing time on the court and all but one of them playing at least ten minutes. Just like Friday’s win over Holy Family, every player on the court scored, led by C.J. Fair, who finished with 18 points.
