SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — C.J. Fair scored 19 points, Trevor Cooney had 17 and No. 4 Syracuse hit Binghamton with a long-range barrage in a 93-65 victory on Saturday night.
Syracuse (9-0), which beat Indiana 69-52 on Tuesday night, upped its nonconference home winning streak to 48 games in the Carrier Dome and figures to move up to No. 2 next week after top-ranked Michigan State and No. 3 Kentucky lost this week.
With a starting lineup of one sophomore and four freshmen, Binghamton (2-7) figured to struggle against the bigger, more athletic Orange, and the Bearcats did after a solid start.
Jerami Grant had 14 points for Syracuse, Dajuan Coleman had 13 points and 10 rebounds, and freshman Ron Patterson added a season-high 10 points, hitting two of the Orange's 13 3-pointers, two off the school record.
