Syracuse improved to 2-0 on the season and 7-0 against Maryland-Eastern Shore all-time Tuesday night (65-50) with four players scoring double figures for the Orange.
Shooting efficiently behind the 3-point line with 14-29, the team helped secure head coach Quentin Hillsman 290th career victory.
Emily Engstler had her first career double-double, grabbing 15 points and 11 rebounds, with three blocks on the night. Forward Digna Strautmane made a career-high five 3-pointers, totaling 17 points for Syracuse. The first of those five gave the Orange a 14-13 lead at the end of the first quarter, a tough beginning for a nationally ranked team playing a mid-major visitor. Engstler scored the first five points in the second quarter and found some offensive assistance in Taleah Washington who hit back-to-back three-pointers, setting the Orange up for a 29-20 lead over the Hawks at the half.
