The No. 2-ranked Syracuse Orange cruised past the St. John's Red Storm Saturday, 90-75, in a Big East Conference men's basketball game at Madison Square Garden. The Orange (23-1, 10-1 Big East) were propelled by five players scoring in double-digits, led by sophomore guard Dion Waiters and sophomore center Fab Melo who each tallied 14 points.
Also chipping in was freshman point guard Michael Cater-Williams who netted in a collegiate-best 13 points, which included two 3-pointers in the first half that helped Syracuse take its first double-digit lead. However, Cart-Williams highlight of the game was this thunderous dunk over St. John's junior forward God'sgift Achiuwa, who stands 6-foot-8.
Wow. I have a feeling that come the end of Carter-Williams collegiate playing day this will be one of those plays on the video highlight reel.
