Syracuse vs. Eastern Michigan final score: Orange romp past Eagles, 84-48

USA TODAY Sports

No. 4-ranked Syracuse easily defeated Eastern Michigan, 84-48, Monday at the Carrier Dome.

Sophomore guard Michael Carter-Williams tallied 11 points, 11 assists and six rebounds Monday to propel the No. 4-ranked Syracuse Orange past the Eastern Michigan Eagles, 84-48, in a non-conference men's college basketball game at the Carrier Dome.

Senior guard Brandon Triche scored 12 points while freshman forward Jerami Grant chipped in with college-best 11 points and a pair of blocks for the Orange (6-0), who increased the school record and nation's longest home winning streak to 26 games.

Freshman center DaJuan Coleman scored a game-high and collegiate-best 14 points. Freshman guard Trevor Cooney also added a collegiate-high 11 points. A majority of those points came during garbage time.

Syracuse trailed early, 10-3 just five minutes into the game, but switched to a full-court press that flustered the Eagles into 17 first-half turnovers and poor shot selection. In the last 15 minutes of the first half, Syracuse outscored Eastern Michigan, 32-7, to take a commanding 35-17 lead heading into the locker room.

In the second half, Eastern Michigan never got closer than 17 points.

Senior guard Derek Thompson paced the Eagles with 18 points. Thompson was one of two Eagle players to score in double figures, as Glenn Braynt was the second-highest scorer with 16 points.

On Wednesday, Syracuse returns to the hardwood with a non-conference showdown with the visiting Long Beach St. 49ers. Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. ET.
