Syracuse men’s basketball falls to Boston College 80-75 on the road

Joe Puccio: Well, some days you’re the bug and some days you’re the windshield. On Tuesday, Syracuse men’s basketball was squashed by the wipers of Boston College, 80-75. BC took down SU for the first time since 2018, thanks in large part to a 21 nothing run by the Eagles. Syracuse head man Adrian Autry detailed why BC’s run was the difference.

Adrian Autry: It’s a couple plays that they got on that we that we we didn’t communicate well along. They got a couple of. We just didn’t handle one one very well. They got going and then after that you know we could score. We’re not a stretch. We’re just offensively we wasn’t, you know, we could score a little bit at 21. Those guys maybe have a different. And if we missed results, I mean, we missed a ton of free throws at the time that we would like a come.

Quadir Copeland: Like I said, that’s why the game was they had a run, they kept it going, they made shots and players played well, you know, quality players and ready to play. And I felt like that was the big difference when they got eight young guys ready to play. It’s a big difference.

JJ Starling: Maybe sometimes when we over-rotated or sometimes when we didn’t rotate enough and they were able to get open shots. And when you’re you’re in a groove, you have your rhythm, especially at home. It’s hard to really stop that once you get it going. You just got to learn, you know, that word urgency, you know, carrying that through for a full 40 minutes. Because if we play like that, you know what got us back into the game and we can compete with any team in the country.

Joe Puccio: Playing like a team is paramount for Syracuse moving forward. The Orange are now 14 and seven overall and an even five and five in ACC play. The next opportunity for Syracuse to get back in the win column is on Saturday when ETSU battles Wake Forest. It’s a 7:45 p.m. tip over and Winston-Salem.
