Here we go Orange fans! Happy Friday and let's travel back to January 27th, 1996.
On this day the Syracuse Orange beat the Boston College Golden Eagles 88-73 in front of 24,600 fans at the Carrier Dome. SU improved to 14-5 on the year while a somewhat decent BC team led by Danya Abrams fell to 12-4.
'Cuse was led by Todd Burgan, who scored 23 points and grabbed 7 boards. John Wallace had a nice performance with 18 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 blocks. Lazarus Sims scored 18 and dished out 10 assists. And we can't forget Bobby Lazor who came off the bench to grab 1 rebound in 3 minutes.
This was actually a very good SU team that also featured Jason Cipolla, Otis Hill, and Marius Janulis. They were a pretty deep squad and had some balance and star power. They would wind up making a great run during March Madness all the way to the championship game, you may have heard about that. It's all about the Orange!
