A crucial turnover allowed Syracuse to pull away mid-way through the second half.

Syracuse forward Tyler Roberson hit a jump shot to put the Orange up by six with about nine minutes to play in the second half of Saturday night's men's basketball game against the Elon Phoenix (2-2). Directly after, teammate Michael Gbinije stole the Phoenix inbound pass and knocked down a three-pointer. A five point play in a matter of seconds effectively put the game away and Syracuse would go on to win 66-55 in their third straight game in the Carrier Dome.

The Bonnies held the lead for most of the game, but strong second-half play from Syracuse overcame the deficit.

The announced Carrier Dome attendance had quite a few St. Bonaventure (1-1) fans in the stands out of the 21,379 people that came to see the matchup. They were loud, visible, and pestering Orange fans throughout the game. However, Syracuse (2-0) had the last cheer as the Orange overcame a 32-21 deficit to topple St. Bonaventure 79-66.
