Hakim Warrick and Kueth Duany each scored 18 as the Orangemen won their 18th straight game at home, 16th this season. Syracuse built a 35-17 halftime lead and then cruised in the second half, partly because of their defense.
A tough man-to-man limited the Mountaineers to 27 percent from the field as Kevin Pittsnogle (2-for-10), finished with just nine points and nine rebounds.
