Against Lehigh, they shot 54.4% from the floor, 50% from the three-point line, and more than 75% from the free-throw line. The offense was clicking in high gear. It was a night where everyone adds and no one subtracts. Everyone participates, everyone creates and scores. 

On the contrary, the Lehigh Mountain Hawks, could not stop Jesse Edwards, one of the game’s key players. Lehigh took a 90-72 loss. In the first half of the game, Edwards threw the team on his back and got them out of the hole they were going through the first few minutes. He began to do his thing and was becoming more and more comfortable on the court, so much so that there was no one to block him. 

Meanwhile, the team began to join the party with Edwards, who finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds. Joe Girard had 19 points, as the game’s top scorer. Finally, Judah Mintz scored 17 points. These are numbers Jim Boeheim would love to see regularly. 

Syracuse dominated the second half, 44 to 26. They continued to play with good rhythm during the second half. It was the opposite story against Colgate, as the Orange struggled to make any stops. The Raiders hits shots from all over the floor and gave the Orange a headache all night. Which SU team will show up the rest of the non-con season. We shall see.
