2,000 wins for the Orange!

The Syracuse Orange basketball team had an impressive win over Miami on January 24th, winning 73-53.  The Orange had a hot night shooting from the perimeter, making 13 three point shots, and had a tough interior defense with 11 blocked shots along with many altered shots.  It moved the Orange to 5-1 in the ACC, and put them in a tie for first place.

The game also marked the 2,000th win for the Syracuse men's basketball program.  The Orange are the fifth program to win that many games.  The top five are:
