Duke Blue Devils
Central Connecticut State Blue Devils
Michael Carter-Williams scored a career-high 18 points and added 13 assists and No. 7 Syracuse beat Central Connecticut State 96-62 on Monday, giving Orange coach Jim Boeheim his 902nd career win.
Boeheim tied Bob Knight for second all-time in victories among Division I men's coaches. Duke's Mike Krzyzewski leads with 939.

Carter-Williams posted his seventh double-double of the season. Fair finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds, Co...

Many experts predicted combined point totals of over 100 in this year's New Era Pinstripe Bowl between Syracuse and West Virginia. There was just one problem: only one offense showed up. The Orange dominated from start to finish, blasting the Mountaineers, 38-14, at a snowy Yankee Stadium. Conditions were a factor, but let's keep in mind: both teams are at the same...
According to @D_PaulSoHard, this is the front cover of the Weirton Daily Times which lists “WVU loses bowel” which was probably meant to say “WVU loses bowl.” It’s bad enough that your team only puts 14 points up on the Syracuse Orange but then you add insult to injury and have to pick up your morning paper and read how your team lost their bowels.
