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!
