SYRACUSE ORANGEMEN 65 Notre Dame Fighting Irish 60
February 24th, 2015 – Edmund P. Joyce Center – South Bend, Indiana
SOUTH BEND, IN. — Syracuse jumped out to an early lead Wednesday night, scoring the first five points of the game but the Notre Dame Fighting Irish quickly came back to take a 7-5 advantage, which would end up being its only lead of the night, as the Orange handed the Irish only their second loss at home this season in Syracuse’s 65-60 victory against ninth-ranked Notre Dame
Senior Rakeem Christmas scored 14 points and became the 59th player in school history to record 1,000 career points. Christmas eventually would foul-out with just over five minutes left in the game, but not before he pulled down a total of 12 rebounds, making the night his 11th double-double of the season.
Christmas was just one of four Syracuse players to reach double figures in scoring. Sophomore B.J. Johnson tied his career high with 19 points to help the Orange to a 25-16 advantage in points from the bench. Junior Michael Gbinije finished with 12 points, while junior Trevor Cooney added 11 points. The Orange shot 40 percent from the field and held Notre Dame to just 34 percent, well below their 51 percent average this season.
Syracuse will face another top 10 team on Saturday, Feb. 28 when it travels to Durham, N.C. to face Duke for the second time in as many weeks.
