Despite its offensive struggles late in the game, the No. 3 Syracuse University men's basketball team holds on to defeat Marshall University and extend its record to 9-0.

If a fan were to look at the box score after the No. 3 Syracuse men's basketball team's (9-0, 6-0 home) 62-56 victory over the Marshall Thundering Herd (5-2, 2-1 road) Tuesday night, it would seem as though it was a close game the whole night. It would seem as though it were a barn burner or even a possible upset waiting to happen.
