Syracuse Reaches Century Mark in 46-Point Drubbing

Ryan Maloney@RyanEMaloneyContributor IIDecember 6, 2009


The Syracuse University men's basketball squad put six scorers in double-figures as they rolled to a 101-55 victory over the Black Bears of Maine.

Freshman point guard Brandon Triche led all Orange scorers with 16 points, connecting on all but one of his seven field-goal attempts. 

Fellow frosh Mookie Jones led the team's long-range attack, connecting on 4-of-7 shots from behind the arc, finishing with 12 points.

Senior Andy Rautins turned in another well-rounded effort with eight points, nine assists, four rebounds, and two steals. 

Surprisingly enough, All-American hopeful Wes Johnson was not among those who reached double-figures for Syracuse. 

The junior transfer tallied seven points on just six shot attempts, but blocked four shots at the defensive end, and pulled down six rebounds.

The No.7/No.8 nationally-ranked Orange improved their record to a perfect 8-0 on the season, while Maine fell to 3-4. 

The game served as the final tuneup for Syracuse before their highly-anticipated matchup Thursday night against the No.13/No.17 Florida Gators (8-0).
