Bloomin' On Ya: Syracuse 103 - Bloomsburg 60

"Score in that basket. The one over there." - Rich Barnes-US PRESSWIRE

Forget Taco Time. The Syracuse Orange looked like they were in serious Combo Platter Time territory at times during their 103-60 exhibition win over the Bloomburg Huskies on Sunday.

Forget Taco Time. The Syracuse Orange looked like they were in serious Combo Platter Time territory at times during their 103-60 exhibition win over the Bloomburg Huskies on Sunday.

Brandon Triche led the Orange with 23 points. Triche, Syracuse’s senior guard, scored 18 in the first half.

James Southerland scored 17 points, hitting all five of his attempts from 3-point range.

Sophomore guard Michael Carter-Williams combined his 15 points with eight assists. C.J. Fair scored 12 points and freshman Jerami Grant added 11.

After a big of a sluggish start, the Orange broke out to a 60-24 halftime lead and never looked back.

Trevor Cooney made his official debut as a member of the Orange. He scored six points on 2-5 shooting from beyond the arc and dished three assists as well. Cooney was happy with his performance:

"I thought I played pretty well. I just want to be a spark off of the bench—just come in, play hard and do whatever the team needs me to do."

So what's the point of these two games? Can Coach Boeheim get anything out of playing these over-matched teams? Turns out he can.

"You learn something every time you practice, every time you play. Every time you get up in the morning, you learn something. Sometimes you learn more than others, but there's a lot of things than can be picked out of games. We had four, five minutes of tape on the first game. We'll have four, five minutes on this. There's always things you can work on. I think that one thing we stressed is not turn it over and I think we were much better at not turning the ball over today."

Now, the Orange get ready for their season-opener against the San Diego St. Aztecs on Friday. According to Boeheim, "we are prepared as we could be." Let the anticipation begin.

Jeremy Ryan will have a more in-depth recap of the game and press conference Monday.
