Despite Late 16-0 Run By Detroit, Boeheim Earns 900th Win

Score: No. 3 Syracuse 72, Detroit 68

Star(s): Syracuse: James Southerland 22 Pts, 4 Reb, 2 Blk. Michael Carter-Williams 12 Pts, 10 Ast. Detroit: Doug Anderson 18 Pts 4 Reb and some viscous dunks. 

Story: The first half was all Orange. The team opened up a 20-point lead early on the shoulders of another incredible three-point shooting performance from James Southerland. But late in the second half, the Titans surged back, cutting the Orange lead to single digits. Michael Carter-WIlliams iced the game from the foul line with just a few seconds remaining. 

Highlight of the Night: Coach Boeheim earned his 900th win, putting him in an elite group with Mike Krzyzewski and Bob Knight.
