Big East Tournament 2012, Syracuse Vs. UConn Halftime Score: Orange Lead Huskies, 27-24

Sophomore guard Dion Waiters has netted 10 points for the Syracuse Orange men's basketball team, who leads the Connecticut Huskies 27-24 at halftime of a Big East Conference Tournament quarterfinal game at Madison Square Garden.

The Orange, the tournament's No. 1 seed, led by as much as eight points, 23-15, with 5:38 to play in the first half, however, a small 6-0 run by UConn trimmed the margin to just 23-21 with 3:54 to go. From there, both teams traded baskets until SU's junior guard Brandon Triche capped the half's scoring with a putback slam with just under a minute to go.

Both teams have made less than 32-percent of their shots.

Sophomore guards Jeremy Lamb and Shabazz Napier each have tallied a team-high five points for UConn, which advanced to the semifinal-round by defeating the DePaul Blue Demons and West Virgina Mountaineers, respectively.

The Orange are playing their first game of the five-day event as they earned a double-bye.
