Syracuse 75 - Seton Hall 63: Let's Do More Of This, Please

USA TODAY Sports

All you really need to say is that the Syracuse Orange finally did everything they're supposed to do in order to win basketball games today in their 75-63 win over the Seton Hall Pirates.

All you really need to say is that the Syracuse Orange finally did everything they're supposed to do in order to win basketball games today in their 75-63 win over the Seton Hall Pirates.

Michael Carter-Williams dished out a Big East Tournament-record fifteen assists and didn't commit any turnovers.

Brandon Triche took over in the second half when the team needed someone to put them over the top. He finished with 17 points.

James Southerland shot the lights out in the first half and almost single-handidly kept the Orange in the game. He finished with 20 points and went 6-of-9 from three-point range.

C.J. Fair did C.J. Fair things all night and ended up with 16 points and eight rebounds.

Baye Moussa Keita and Rakeem Christmas, when they weren't committing sins that made Jim Boeheim's brain explode, actually played reasonably well. They combined for 14 points and eight boards.

The Orange found themselves in a big hole early but weathered the storm so that when they finally got their s**t together, it was relatively smooth sailing in the second half. Triche found his confidence. Southerland found his shot. Carter-Williams found his game. And Boeheim found one hell of a nose nugget.

The Orange move on to face future-ACC rival Pitt in the Big East quarters with the winner taking on either Georgetown or Cincinnati on Thursday. The Orange were supposed to beat the Pirates, so now it's about winning a game against a legit opponent, something SU hasn't done in a long while.
