In front of a raucous crowd of over 26,000 fans, the No.4 Syracuse Orange got a resounding 69-52 win over No. 23 Indiana in a rematch of last year’s Sweet 16 matchup. And just like the last time these two teams met, the biggest story of this game was the Orange’s stifling 2-3 zone, which held the Hoosiers to just 37% shooting from the field.

The Orange started off on fire, scoring the first ten points of the game. The Hoosiers rallied by going on a 15-5 run before eventually taking a 27-26 lead late in the first half. Syracuse ended the first 20 minutes on the right note by taking a four-point lead into the locker room. Indiana scored the first four points of the second half to tie the game, but the Orange retaliated with a 25-4 run to pull away.

Sophomore guard Trevor Cooney paced the Orange in scoring with 21 points, including five three-pointers. Freshman Tyler Ennis had another solid all-around performance, scoring 17 points, grabbing seven rebounds, and dishing out eight assists. Syracuse is now 8-0 will be back in action on Saturday night at the Carrier Dome against the Binghamton Bearcats.
