It might have been their best performance of the season to date.

No. 1-seed Syracuse shot well and played good defense in a 75-59 win over Kansas State that sends the Orange back to the Sweet 16 for the third time in four years.

Scoop Jardine was a perfect 3-for-3 from 3-point range in the second half for nine of his 16 points. As a team the Orange were 6-of-9 from beyond the arc and shot 51% overall for the game. Dion Waiters led all scorers with 18 points while James Southerland contributed 15 and six boards.

Filling in for center Fab Melo, Rakeem Christmas was a bit of an unsung hero – 8 points and 11 rebounds, while giving his best effort on defense against K-State’s 6’11” Jordan Henriquez.
