Orange Pound DePaul In Regular Season Finale
Syracuse, NY (WIBX) - The Syracuse offense had its best performance of the season as the Orange blewout DePaul 107-59 in the team’s regular season finale.
Six players finished in double digits for the 12th-ranked Orange including senior Rick Jackson who, in his final game at the Carrier Dome, filled the stat sheet with 14 points, seven rebounds, four blocks, two assists and one steal.
Scoop Jardine had 14 points, Dion Waiters added 12 while Kris Joseph and Nolan Hart each scored 11.
The 107 point total, and 57 in the first half, were both season highs for Syracuse (25-6, 12-6 Big East) who will look ahead to the Big East Tournament which begins Tuesday at Madison Square Garden. The Orange finished third in the conference, earning a bye in the first two rounds of the tourney, meaning the team won’t hit the court again until Thursday.
