Taco Time: Elijah Hughes rings the bell for first time this season

We welcome a new bell-ringer into the fold.

NCAA Basketball: Colgate at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team moved to 4-1 ATTS in its win over Colgate last night with a final score of 77-56. Of course, Syracuse wasn’t eligibile to achieve taco time away from the Carrier Dome last week, but if it had the Orange would have went 1-1 as it only scored over 70 points against UConn.

But last night Syracuse achieved taco time for the fourth time in five tries this season, which can only mean one thing in Central New York. You guessed it, Thanksgiving day tacos.

While I would never condone such a thing, those in attendance from last night can flock to the nearest Taco Bell to exchange your ticket stub for a free taco.

Elijah Hughes did the honors this time when he earned a steal on the defensive end and took the ball coast-to-coast on the left-hand side of the court for a layup at the rim. Shoutout to the Syracuse basketball twitter page for the gif.

This was Hughes’ first time as the bell-ringer this season. He’ll have to do it once more to tie Tyus Battle for the leader. See TNIAAM taco tracker statistics below.
