The Syracuse Orange improved to 8-2 in Big East play with a 77-58 victory over the St. Johns Red Storm on Sunday in the Carrier Dome.

With the win, the Orange remain tied for first place with Marquette and also improve their home winning streak to 37 games, which is the longest active streak in Division I.

But the biggest story of the day was the return to action of forward James Southerland.

The senior missed the last six games after the university declared him ineligible due to an academic issue.  Southerland appealed the decision on Friday and was reinstated on Sunday.

Southerland’s return to the lineup has a multifaceted impact on the Orange as they enter the stretch run of the season.
