At halftime of the Syracuse-Stephen F. Austin game, the stat sheet is the truth.
SFA shot even worse than anticipated against the Syracuse zone, going 0-for-11 from 3-point range. The Lumberjacks were 9-for-33 overall (27.3 percent), and thank goodness for reserve forward Benson Akpan's 4-for-4 shooting, or it would have really been ghastly.
Meanwhile, the Orange shot 62.5 percent from the field and brutalized SFA on the glass, 24-11.
Predictable result: Syracuse 38, SFA 22 at halftime.
