SYRACUSE, NYA second half explosion pushed Syracuse past Providence and with the win, the Orange is off to its best start in school history with a 22-1 record. After the game the players were once again in a jovial mood.

During the game, Scoop Jardine's twitter account posted a game update. Jardine explained how he could have possibly tweeted during the game as well as who would replace Wes Johnson on his weekly video segment if Johnson was ever too hurt to film the segment. Jardine also talked about the cut-out head he's been awaiting.

After I stopped recording, Jardine commented he hopes when his head arrives in the stands it will bring him a career high in points like tonight when Kris Joseph had his giant head in the crowd for the first time and scored a career best 23.

There was one scary moment Tuesday evening. Jardine tried to connect with Wes Johnson on an alley-oop, but his defender under-cut Johnson. He flipped in the air in a similar manner as Kristof Ongenaet did last year for the Orange. Johnson was down for about a minute, but eventually walked off. He played a few more minutes, but eventually sat out the rest of the game.

Johnson explains why (video is black because I couldn't get a good headshot of Johnson and opted to get the best audio possible):
