James Southerland got his first start of the season in his final game at the Carrier Dome and made it pay off, posting the first double-double of his career in leading #17 Syracuse to a 78-57 victory over DePaul.
Seven Catholic basketball schools—St. John’s, Georgetown, DePaul, Marquette, Seton Hall, Providence and Villanova—announced they were splitting from the Big East to form a basketball-centric conference.
Syracuse had an easy time against DePaul last night. It wasn’t quite the 107-59 beat down from last year but it also wasn’t the 59-57 nail biter from the year before that. It was a solid win as the Orange improve to 15-0 and will remain No. 1 in the polls
