Home Away From Dome for Syracuse Orange Fans

Broken record

Posted by Josh on December 10, 2006

I find it hard to take many positives out of last night’s win over Colgate, other than that SU did not trail by 15 points midway through the first half. They still suffered from indifference to lesser opponents, leading to substandard effort for long stretches of the game. There continues to be a lack of rebounding and set offense — that is, offense that does not include Demetris Nichols simply shooting over short defenders. Worse, Paul Harris had a terrible game and it sounds from his comments like his confidence is starting to wane. I feel like they would have been better off not playing this game at all. The only unexpected bright spot was Rautins’ all-around solid play (including 4 steals).

Here’s an alternate game story from the Utica Observer-Dispatch.
