    The Golden Lions missed their first seven shots and committed three turnovers as Syracuse scored the game's first 18 points in the opening 5:36 of play.

    Hemingway had seven points and the 6-foot-4 Alexander five in the spurt before Abrams' jumper halted the skid. The Orange scored the first 16 points in a 90-31 win over Bryant on Thursday.

    Syracuse had 24 assists on 34 baskets, outrebounded the Golden Lions 61-24, including 31-6 on the offensive glass, scored 58 points in the paint, and had 30 second-chance points to six for Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
