SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Jonny Flynn scored 17 points to lead five Syracuse players in double figures, and the Orange beat crosstown foe Le Moyne 85-51 in their season opener Sunday night.
Christopher Johnson had 16 points to lead the Dolphins, Laurence Ekperigin had 14 and seven rebounds, and Kevin Roth had 10 points.
It was the first game in 14 years between the teams and it was no contest from the outset. The Division II Dolphins could do little right in the opening half, committing 15 turnovers and shooting 8-for-34 (24 percent).
Syracuse scored the first 13 points before Ekperigin finally broke through with a twisting drive at 14:53. The Orange led 38-19 at halftime.
