Despite Colgate's efforts to keep the game close in the second half, the Syracuse Orange (8-1, 0-0) took down the Raiders (3-6, 0-0) on Saturday afternoon in the Carrier Dome by a score of 72-58.

However, Syracuse showed promise in that area against Colgate early when guard Frank Howard buried a triple on their first possession of the game. Tyus battle was good for three three-pointers in the first half as well.
