Syracuse (1-2) throttled Wagner 54-0 in the Dome Opener on Saturday. It’s the first win of the Scott Shafer era, but he wasn’t focused on that.

“I didn’t think about my first win too much until they dumped the Gatorade on me,” Shafer said, with a chuckle. “But it feels great.”

The big story of the day revolved around, what else, the quarterbacks. Senior transfer Drew Allen started the game, but was yanked after he mustered just three points on three drives.

The big talking point in coming into this game centers around Quarterback Drew Allen. The senior threw four interceptions last week against Northwestern and has come under a lot of scrutiny in the last week, but Quarterbacks coach, Tim Lester maintained all week in practice that Allen is still the starter.

And with the number 11 pick in the draft, the Philadelphia 76ers choose... Michael Carter-Williams, point guard  from Syracuse!  For the former Orange point guard, the Philly selection is a bit of a reunion as he reunites with BABC teammate Nerlens Noel, who was dealt to the 76ers after being drafted by the New Orleans Pelicans at pick number 6.  Carter-Williams said, "I'm really excited.  Me and Nerlens grew up together.  We're best friends.  It's like a dream come true."
