Anthony scored 13 points in the first half, including three steals, where he went end-to-end for thunderous one-handed dunks.
Carmelo Anthony added 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Orangemen, who defeated Cornell for the 28th straight time. Anthony has now recorded a double-double in each of his four regular season games. The Orangemen (3-1) will next play Binghamton (one of three more upstate teams) before finally opening their Big East schedule in January.
Kueth Duany chipped in 13 points for the Orangemen, who shot nearly 50 percent from the field. Syracuse also had a defensive show collecting 12 steals to add to seven blocks (Jeremy McNeil and Craig Forth each had two).
Cody Toppert paced the Big Red with 21 pounds, but the Big Red were overpowered from the start. Grant Harrell nailed two 3-pointers to put Cornell in front 12-9 early on. But Duany hit his own three and then dished it to Anthony for an alley-oop dunk that gave Syracuse the lead for good.
Warrick led a 21-5 run with a steal and a slam to put Syracuse in front by 13 with just over nine minutes left in the first half. Syracuse then took a 44-27 lead at halftime and went up by as many as 25 before Cornell started its comeback.
Toppert hit four three pointers as part of a 13-0 Big Red run to pull to within nine points. But Cornell never drew closer.
Cornell no match for Syracuse
