Syracuse fans would argue that sophomore guard Trevor Cooney could win a 3-point shooting contest against the best the nation’s got to offer. After tonight, they may want to enter him in a dunk contest as well. Cooney threw down three dunks in a two-minute span on the road in the first half against Boston College. The 2-3 zone of the Orange forced the Eagles into 10 turnovers before halftime, many of which Cooney took advantage of.
Despite the Cooney dunk-fest, BC hung with Syracuse throughout. It wasn’t until late in the second half that the Orange pulled away for a 10-point win.
