Syracuse falls at Virginia

Syracuse played without Jerami Grant in the second half, and could not muster enough offense to hang with Virginia on the road.

Syracuse could not overcome the loss of Jerami Grant for most of the first half and the entire second half as they fell to Virginia 75-56 on the road.

The Orange got off to a quick start, withstood a first half rally by the Cavaliers, and took a one point lead into intermission. Both teams were hart to start the final frame, alternating three-pointers as the lead went back and forth.

With the game tied at 42 at the 11-minute mark, Virginia exerted its dominance. The Cavs went on a quick 12-3 run, highlighted by a London Perrantes and Justin Anderson three-pointer that proved to be too much for Syracuse to overcome.

C.J. Fair and Tyler Ennis led the way for Syracuse with 13 points a piece.

With the loss, Syracuse falls to 26-3 on the season, 13-3 in conference play. The Orange will look to rebound against Georgia Tech on Tuesday, March 4th inside the Carrier Dome.
