The Orange come out on top against rival Villanova without forward James Southerland, who was ruled out indefinitely because of eligibility issues.
The No. 7 Syracuse men’s basketball team (16-1, 4-0 Big East) held off the Villanova Wildcats (11-5, 2-1 Big East) 72-61 Saturday at the Carrier Dome. The win extended Syracuse’s home winning streak to 34, the longest in the nation.
“I thought this was our grittiest win of the year,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said. “Everybody just dug in defensively and we couldn’t get anything going offensively.”
James Southerland provided strong bench play to help propel the Orange past the Golden Griffins to remain undefeated on the year.
After a first half that saw the Orange trailing with less than a minute left to play, the Syracuse Orange men's basketball team turned it around in the second half, scoring 50 points en route to an 85-61 victory over Canisius.

We set out to find some of the campus' best kept secrets.
In the "Battle of the Midway," the Orange basketball team, driven by C.J. Fair and Brandon Triche, stifled the the Aztecs in the first game of the season.
