      Syracuse caps perfect Dome season with win over Louisville

      SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Brandon Triche scored 18 points, Kris Joseph added 11 in the final home game of his career, and second-ranked Syracuse beat No. 19 Louisville 58-49 on Saturday.

      Syracuse (30-1, 17-1 Big East) set a conference record for victories - no Big East team had accumulated 17 in the regular season - and the Orange also finished the regular season with 30 wins for the first time in coach Jim Boeheim's 36-year tenure.

      The Orange capped only their second unbeaten season in the Carrier Dome, going 19-0. The only other Syracuse team to go undefeated in the dome was the national championship squad of 2002-03 led by Carmelo Anthony, which finished 17-0.

      Dion Waiters had 13 points for Syracuse, which held the Cardinals to 2-of-23 shooting from 3-point range and a season low in points.

      Chane Behanan and Russ Smith led Louisville (22-9, 10-8) with 10 points apiece, while Gorgui Dieng finished with six on 3-of-13 shooting.
