Big East: Syracuse cruises

By Jerry Palm - March 07, 2007

Syracuse played much better team ball in the second half and rolled to a 78-65 win. They'll take on the Irish tomorrow.

Devendorf had a big game with 19, but Demetris Nichols hit 7-11 from three point range to end up with 28.

Late in the game, the ball got stuck between the shot clock and the top of the backboard. The 6-8 Nichols used a broom handle to get it down.

A piece of news came from the NCAA late in this game. Selection committee member and UCLA AD Dan Guerrero's father passed away last night. Gary Walters, the chairman of the committee released as statement saying that Guerrero will still participate in the process, but do so from LA by phone and computer so that he can be with his family.
