“We knew that we were favored a little bit in this game and as far as our talent level. So we wanted to not give a team like that a confidence in thinking that they can win the game.
C.J. did a great job for us starting the game off with the first six points or so. He had a mismatch and we tried to go to him early. He kind of jump‑started us.” -Brandon Triche following Syracuse’s win over Montana
Seth Davis looks great in Orange.
Syracuse absolutely destroyed Montana last night by a tune of 81-34 Thursday night out in San Jose, California. The defensive effort was staggering, holding every Montana player to five points or less. Brandon Triche led the way with 20 points for Syracuse. The game went as planned, with the zone completely swallowing up any offense Montana tried to muster.
The Orange next have a virtual road game against the California Golden Bears. In case you were wondering, Cal is about 45 minutes out of San Jose, and the crowd will be against the Orange this weekend. Tip off is slated for 9:40 Saturday night.
