Brianna Butler and Brittney combined for 42 of SU's 113 points in a landslide win over Maryland-Eastern.
Only 3.2 seconds was left in the first half. Everyone’s gaze was fixated on the clock as Syracuse and Maryland-Eastern players tussled at the ball as yells of “we want tacos” echoed throughout the Dome. The Lady Hawks came up with the ball but time expired before they could get a shot off.
The buzzer sounded. No tacos. But it was only the halftime buzzer.
But 13 seconds into the second half, the Syracuse women’s basketball team made a layup to mark the earliest taco time in Carrier Dome history.
Review: Hip-hop masters Macklemore & Ryan Lewis brought all the intimacy of a club show and all the theatrics of an arena concert to Syracuse on Monday.
Coursing with chatter, the people waiting to enter the Carrier Dome were wondering if the freshly famous rap duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis would be as captivating live as they were on their viral singles and kitschy thrift store music video.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are the Barnum & Bailey of hip-hop, and the Dome was their big top Monday night. They arrived with a caravan of musicians, oddballs and friends. And by the time their set was done, no one thought it ever was going to end.
Cooney made 7-of-8 from behind the arc to help the Orange win its first game of the season.
Syracuse defeated Cornell 82-60 in its season opener tonight behind a stellar shooting performance from Trevor Cooney. The redshirt sophomore led all scorers with a career-high 27 points, shooting 10-for-12 from the field, including 7-for-8 from three-point range.
“We did a good job of finding Trevor and he bailed us out when we really needed him in the first half when we had nothing,” Head Coach Jim Boeheim said.
The Fighting Irish battled back in the final two sets, but the Orange held strong in a three-set victory and have now won seven of its last nine matches.
The Syracuse University women’s volleyball team returned to the court at the Carrier Dome for one last time this season, and made it count. The Orange grinded out a victory in a mid-week battle against familiar foe Notre Dame.
Syracuse (12-13, 7-6 ACC) succeeded in countering every shift of momentum for Notre Dame (10-14, 4-9 ACC). The Fighting Irish lived up to its name, and kept each set close. However, with two come-from-behind sets, the Orange escaped with a three set victory, by a score of 25-19, 25-23 and 25-23.
The Orange are still ironing out all the wrinkles, but continued a balanced attack in SU's 81-46 victory.
In its final tune-up before the start of the regular season, the Syracuse Orange defeated the Ryerson Rams 81-46 Tuesday in the team’s second and final exhibition game. The Orange boasted an extremely balanced attack, with 11 players seeing time on the court and all but one of them playing at least ten minutes. Just like Friday’s win over Holy Family, every player on the court scored, led by C.J. Fair, who finished with 18 points.
The energy of SU basketball began Friday night, and some saw what Syracuse basketball is like for the first time.
Throughout our daily routines, we rarely stop to think about the energy that surrounds us – the energy it takes to turn on the lights, the energy that goes into the production of our food or the energy used to heat our showers.
However, as I stood in the student section of the Carrier Dome last night for my freshman introduction to the long-awaited basketball season, energy was all I could think about. Never before had I been in a place where so much enthusiasm and excitement was packed into one building.
Never before had I experienced anything quite like Orange Madness.
