No. 1 Syracuse Beats NC State 88-72

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Dion Waiters scored a career-high 22 points to help No. 1 Syracuse beat North Carolina State 88-72 on Saturday.

Scoop Jardine added 16 points for the Orange (11-0), including a pair of 3-pointers during an 11-2 spurt that finally gave them some cushion after the Wolfpack fought back from a 17-point deficit late in the first half. Waiters also came up big during that run, starting it by knocking down his own 3-pointer to answer one by Scott Wood that brought N.C. State (6-4) within 63-61.

Waiters also jumped a pass and raced in for a dunk, then Jardine closed the spurt with another 3 to push the lead to 74-63 with 6:41 left.

It was a good road test for Syracuse, which was playing for the first time as No. 1 this season -- as well as its first game outside its home state.

      You sound desperate and pathetic in attempting to make a point. Moreso, when the article has nothing to do with ECU, at all, you appear foolish. But, have it! I'll just sit back and laugh!

          I think you need to re-read or learn to read, whichever applies. Start at the bottom and get your Mama, Papa or Santa to help you with it...you are actually the biggest creep here, as usual.
