Syracuse won its second consecutive road game to pick up its 20th win of the season, as it defeated South Florida Saturday, 72-49.

A dash of good defense plus a dose of Rick Jackson were the ingredients that Jim Boeheim needed to put together a win in Tampa Saturday.  The Orange’s patented 2-3 zone defense held South Florida to 35 percent (18-of-51) shooting and led Syracuse to a 72-49 win.

Syracuse avoided the first-ever five game losing streak in the Jim Boeheim era with a 66-58 road victory Wednesday night over the No. 7 Connecticut Huskies.

In the first half it was a seemingly familiar story for the Syracuse men’s basketball team, as SU struggled with poor defense and some bad shots. The Orange missed their first six shots, committed four fouls and turned the ball over three times before finally scoring their first points of the night. Syracuse rebounded though, and went on to grab its first win at Connecticut since 1997, 66-58.

Syracuse stomped instate foe Cornell by 20 points Tuesday night, but SU head coach Jim Boeheim was not happy with his team despite the big win.

Jim Boeheim has seen his share of good and bad basketball during his 35 years as coach of the Orange. Tuesday, Syracuse beat Cornell by 20 points, outrebounded the Big Red by 21 and held the visitors to 34 percent shooting. Following that performance, Boeheim was less than impressed.

SU got off to another slow start, but was able to turn it around with a strong second half to top Canisius 86-67.

There was a sense of déjà vu for the SU men’s basketball team Sunday afternoon in its home matchup with Canisius. Much like SU's opening night victory versus Northern Iowa, getting out of the starting blocks strong proved to be an issue once more in the Orange's 86-67 victory over the Golden Griffins.
