It must have been a long plane ride home to San Diego State, after the 80-to-64 beating the Aztecs took at the Carrier Dome last night.
A record NIT crowd of 26,752 urged the Orange on to the runaway win. The fact that satellite TV was the only other way to see the game helped to fill the seats, and showed the team again how high fan spirit has soared, since the NCAA rejected SU.
Next stop for the Orange, Clemson University in South Carolina for a 7pm game Wednesday night. Cable viewers will be able to catch that one on ESPN2.
Here’s more detail on how SU beat San Diego State, as provided by The Syracuse Post Standard.
