800 And Counting: Syracuse Tames Great Danes 75-43

Albany is no LeMoyne.

Then again, the Syracuse team that stepped on to the court tonight wasn't the same as the team that lost to LeMoyne last week.  This Orange squad took control early and never looked back, dominating in nearly every category possible to win the game 75-43 and secure Jim Boeheim's 800th all-time victory.

None of the Orange went nuts on the statsheet but the points were spread around.  Onuaku led the Orange with 14 points while Wes Johnson added 12 points and 8 rebounds. Rick Jackson, Scoop Jardine and Kris Joseph all scored in double-figures as well. 

In his first game, freshman Brandon Triche scored 8 points, added  assists and grabbed 6 rebounds. Not too shabby for a true freshman not named Flynn.

Andy Rautins went scoreless and 0-4 from three-point range and left the game early in the 2nd half with an apparent ankle injury.  No word yet on the severity though it didn't seem too severe.

For the Orange, some validation that the LeMoyne game was just an anomaly. For Jimmy B, just one more piece of validation that he is among the very best to ever coach the game.
