Gerry McNamara scored 17 points and Kueth Duany chipped in 11 for the Orangemen, who shot 51.4 percent for the game. Defensively, Syracuse was brilliant tonight, converting 11 blocks and 12 steals while turning the ball over just 8 times.
Turnovers proved costly for the Spartans, who saw their 14 turnovers turn into 20 Syracuse points. The Spartans, who lost their third straight, were led by James May's 19 points.
Syracuse opened a 45-35 lead at the break using a 13-3 spurt in the first half's closing minutes. The Orange would open the second half with five more points.
The run was allowed by an airtight zone defense, allowing Warrick to steal the ball and feed it to Jeremy McNeil for the hoop, giving the Orangemen a 4-point lead. Duany then stole the ball and slammed it in, before Warrick used a gorgeous up-and-under to free himself up for a dunk.
McNamara picked off another pass and Anthony finished with another dunk. The run was capped by Duany's 3 from the left corner.
