SU Basketball Returns To Winning Ways With West Virginia Victory

Syracuse basketball won last night 74-61 against West Virginia at the Carrier Dome, which comes with a loud exhale from Orange fans who were watching this team struggle lately. It was Flynn and Devendorf who again led the way for this team while Paul Harris also returned emphatically despite some foul trouble. AO and Rautins still struggled but I look for them to do better Saturday against Villanova as they get more time to practice after recent injuries. I also think this game showed that Rick "Action' Jackson and "The Belgian Waffle" Kristof Ongenaet can contribute without scoring huge. Now let's get to some links so you can read more about the game.
