BUFFALO N.Y. (WIVB) – The second game of the day in Buffalo had none of the drama of the first, with Syracuse rolling past Western Michigan 77-53.
The Orange had a balanced effort from its starting five, with four of them reaching double figures in scoring.
Trevor Cooney led the way with 18 points, including four three-pointers. Several crowd-pleasing dunks higlighted Jerami Grant’s 16 points, while Tyler Ennis chipped in 16 and C.J. Fair added 14.
Syracuse moves on to face Dayton, who upset Ohio State in the early game today 60-59. That game will be part of a double header at First Niagara Center this Saturday.
