The Orange reach 70 points for the first time this season.

Last week, the Syracuse Orange men’s basketball team didn’t even make it halfway to Taco Time. But with 49 seconds remaining in Wednesday night’s 70-54 victory over Colgate, freshman center Jesse Edwards hit a mid-range baseline jumper to put the Orange up 70-52.

Ticket holders from the game will be able to enjoy a free taco at any participating Taco Bell restaurant.

Syracuse is now 1-1 against the taco spread (ATTS) in two regular season games this year.

SU’s next opponent, the Seattle Redhawks, are 2-2 on the year and have actually managed to be a high-scoring bunch with 83 points per game. However, the Redhawks have also allowed 76 points per game — including 81 to the DIII Pacific Oregon Boxers. So if you don’t get to redeem your ticket for a free taco after the Colgate win, Seattle should provide a pretty good opportunity for it on Saturday.
