Wed, 13 Mar 2013 20:35:15 GMT —
James Southerland stole the show, making 6 threes in route to SU's 75 to 63 win over Seton Hall in the Big East Conference Tournament.
Both teams came out hot in the opening minutes, with Orange down for much of the first half. But, behind Southerland's hot shooting, the Orange tied the game at 34. SU then pulled away in the second half. Southerland finished with 20, and senior Brandon Triche scored 17 points in the victory.
"I felt really good," Triche says. "I know I'm capable of playing this game at a high level, just playing with passion."
SU now plays Pittsburgh at approximately 2:30 p.m. on Thursday.
