The #7 Cats took it to #3 Syracuse and their 33,736 fans at the Carrier Dome, earning a hard-fought 83-72 victory. The Cats rebounded from their tough last-second loss to Connecticut on Monday. Syracuse has now lost two straight, falling at Pittsburgh on Monday.

How did the Cats beat the celebrated Syracuse zone? It all started with 50% shooting from the field, 46% from beyond the arc, and 92% from the free-throw line. Wayns, Fisher and Stokes combined for 53 points, of which 30 came from long range. It continued with great defense during meaningful minutes for Maurice Sutton. More to come, but feel free to comment and grade the team and players.
