Trevor Cooney made five 3-pointers en route to 17 points for Syracuse (9-0), which won its 48th straight non-conference home tilt.

"It feels good," said Cooney. "I'm just staying positive and when teammates are setting good screens for you and giving you an open spot, you just have to get it down and it's easy from there."

Jerami Grant tallied 14 points, five rebounds and five assists for the Orange, while DaJuan Coleman netted 13 points with 10 boards on 5-of-6 shooting.

"We made a good effort with the full court defense and established enough room to get some guys some minutes," said Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim. "It is a good learning experience."
