'Cuse fall to Otto Porter

The Syracuse Orange played hard, but definitely not hard enough as they came up short by 11 points to the eleventh ranked Georgetown Hoyas. The blame doesn't all go to Syracuse though some of it must go to Otto Porter Jr. the forward for the Hoyas who had 33 points and 8 rebounds. He also added 5 steals to his part of the box score.

For the 'Cuse they had almost no help from senior guard Brandon Triche who had made only 4 of his 13 shots, even though he had 10 points.But as usual C.J Fair a freshman played amazing with 7 rebounds and 13 points. Plus James Southerland who has been starting his games on the bench came out and played for 13 points.

I would like to say that you can't win a basketball game by yourself, but Otto Porter Jr. did he was the only player in double figures with 33 points except for Moses Ayagba who had 10 rebounds. If you ask me the Syracuse Orange played their worst at the free throw line shooting 66.7% as a team and the Hoyas had an excellent day at the line with a percent of 85.7.
