Recap: Syracuse Crushes Montana By 47 Points

Who expected this?

Score: No. 4 Syracuse 81, No. 13 Montana 34

Star(s):Syracuse:Brandon Triche 20 Pts, 4 Ast, 5 Stl. Michael Carter-Williams 4 Pts, 9 Ast, 7 Reb. 

Story: It was never really close. Syracuse came out with something to prove amidst a flurry of reports about NCAA violations and CBS studio analyst Seth Davis picking the Orange to lose.

Brandon Triche stepped up as the senior leader Orange fans had hoped he'd be all season and led the team in scoring. Rakeem Christmas came up big like he did last year in the tournament and guys like Dajuan Coleman, Trevor Cooney and Jerami Grant were given a chance to make a difference due to the big lead. Even the walk-ons got some burn tonight, playing in the last couple of minutes.
