I guess i cant be too upset with this season so far. They have for the most part improved each game and I love that come second half they are actually playing harder and smarter then the first. Give Depaul credit. They had a simple game plan which they executed extremly well.

I have never seen more talk about a win in all my life. Was it ugly, sure. But in the end, a win, is a win, is a win. The fact that certain talking heads (gottleib) go on tv and say that Kentucky loss was better than SU's win just blow my mind.

Syracuse University basketball pounds Providence
By Mike Waters / The Post-Standard
February 02, 2010, 8:45PM
Wes Johnson lays on the ground after taking a nasty spill in the first half of Tuesday's game against Providence at the Carrier Dome. Johnson returned to the game and started the second half, but he did not play the final 17 minutes of the game. Syracuse used a 22-5 run to start the second half to break open a tight game and key an impressive 85-68 victory over the Providence Friars in front of 20,205 fans at the Carrier Dome on Tuesday night.

The win improved Syracuseís record to 22-1 overall and 9-1 in the Big East. The 22-1 record marks the best start to a season in Syracuse history. Syracuse had started out 21-1 just once before in the 1979-80 season.

Syracuse led 37-34 at halftime, but the Orange scored the first nine points in the second half and just kept rolling from there.

Kris Joseph came off the SU bench to lead the Orange with a career-high 23 points. Joseph made nine of his 11 shots from the field. Arinze Onuaku kick-started the Orange early, scoring 12 of SUís first 26 points. Onuaku finished with 20 points.

Syracuse needed a big game from Joseph after Wes Johnson suffered a scary fall in the first half. Johnson stayed in the game, but he came out of the game for good with 17:06 left in the second half and Syracuse ahead 48-37.

A hush fell over the Carrier Dome midway through the first half when Johnson, Syracuseís star forward, went up for a lob pass and flipped over Providenceís Brian McKenzie. Johnson landed with a sickening thud and lay still on the court for several minutes.

He eventually got up and walked off the court under his own power. After a timeout, Johnson stayed in the game and hit one of his two free throws.

Syracuse led for the entire first half with Onuaku dominating inside. Onuakuís previous high this season was 15 points against North Carolina on Nov. 20.

Andy Rautins hit a 3-pointer with 3:36 left in the first half to give the Orange its biggest lead of the game at 37-26. However, Providence scored the last eight points of the half to make it 37-34 at halftime. Providence guard Vincent Council scored all eight points in the Friarsí run to end the half.

I hope the team isnt paying any attention to all this hype. I hope they are focused on Cincy, Uconn, G-Town, Louisville etc..

How do you think the game with Louisville will go? I just bought tickets for that game. I don't follow it too much but my kids have been wanting to go to a SU game for a long time, so...

The last game I went to I sat 6 rows behind the SU bench. You get to hear some choice words from the players and coaches sitting that close to courtside lol.

Used to have season tickets in 315 20 years ago. It's up in the third tear, obviously. If you get there early, you can go down to the court and get pics while they practice. Autographs, doubtful. G'town beat Nova today. At one point up 23 points, and SU crushed G'town recently. \:\)
