Syracuse, NY (Sports Network) - James Southerland scored 16 of his 21 points
in the second half as fourth-ranked Syracuse moved one step closer to
achieving another major milestone for Jim Boeheim with Saturday's 85-61 win
over Canisius at the Carrier Dome.
Brandon Triche added 19 points for the unbeaten Orange (9-0) and Michael
Carter-Williams tallied 12 points and 14 assists in the victory, the 899th of
Boeheim's career. The longtime head coach will attempt to join Mike Krzyzewski
and Bob Knight as the only men to reach the 900-win mark when Syracuse hosts
Detroit on Monday.
The Orange also extended their non-conference winning streak to 51 straight
regular-season contests by shooting a torrid 57.1 percent (8-of-14) from 3-
point range and 54.8 percent overall. Southerland made 9-of-14 attempts from
the field and 3-of-6 from beyond the arc, with Triche making 2-of-3 tries from
long distance as part of a 7-of-11 night.
Billy Baron and Isaac Sosa each netted 15 points for Canisius (6-2), which
entered the Carrier Dome off to its best 7-game start since 1973-74 and riding
a string of three consecutive wins.
