This Day in 'Cuse History - January 27th 1996

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!
