Syracuse’s Three-Headed Monster Helps Down Pitt

By Andrew Della Piana | @dellie_5


In the city of Pittsburgh, the best things come in threes. Whether it’s the black white gold, or the trio of Sidney Crosby, Malkin, and Letang. But today, it was Syracuse’s three headed monster of the Dyaisha Fair, Georgia Woolley, Alaina Rice combining for 55 points in a 72-59 victory over Pitt. Head Coach Felisha Legette-Jack always knew the depth was there, and an important figure in college basketball reminded her that prior to the season.

I love this man named Geno Auriemma and we had a closed scrimmage against them at UCONN and he said you have a very good one-two-three punch and I know that. but you know hearing it from somebody that’s a season-vet who won multiple national titles. That says a lot about what we’re trying to do I know that we’re we’re really good and and when those three play together and our bigs to what we need to do, but it hasn’t been for a while that they all played well together I think that we’re right where we need to be.”

“At the end of the day, they just have a ton of versatility, they have a ton of firepower. They got a ton of depth. You know they’re big, they’re strong, they’re athletic, their length bothers opponents.”


The Orange have now won 25 consecutive games with the Panthers. SU is rolling with 5 straight wins in the ACC. The Cuse’s goes for 6 on Thursday, when it goes for the season sweep of No. 19 Notre Dame in South Bend.
