Syracuse vs. Louisville, By the Numbers

Syracuse took down Louisville 94-92 last night in what was a truly bizarre game. Syracuse accomplished things it hadn’t done in a long time, both good and bad. Plus, a few members of the Orange put up historic performances. There are plenty of numbers that help get that point across.


How many lead changers there were. It was a hectic game, and Quadir Copeland’s last-second bucket (secured through a goaltending call) was the final update to the scoreboard.


How many rebounds SU had. It’s the Orange’s lowest total in a game since March 2, 2015. That was a 59-47 loss to Virginia, which featured just 20 ‘Cuse boards. 

Syracuse gave up 40 rebounds, which is almost double its own total, and still found a way to win.


The last time SU shot over 60% from the field in a game. That was an 81-63 win over Boston College.


The stat line Maliq Brown pulled off. 11 points, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, 5 steals, and 6 blocks. That’s at least five of each five categories.

Brown’s numbers are truly incredible. He’s just the third player in all of Division I men’s basketball to tally a 5×5 since 2009.


How many games in a row SU has failed to surpass 70% on free throws. Last night, the Orange shot just 67%, and if it was much worse, then the Cardinals would have won it. #FreeThrowsMatter

Syracuse hasn’t had a good day at the line since the blowout loss to North Carolina. Yikes.


How many Syracuse basketball players have ever hit 8 three-pointers in one game. Chris Bell is a part of that small group, and he joined it against Louisville, when he went 8/10 from behind the arc.

Bell also tallied a career-high 30 points.
