SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - James Southerland broke out of a slump with 21 points and Brandon Triche had 19 to lead No. 4 Syracuse over Canisius 85-61 on Saturday night in the Gotham Classic.
Michael Carter-Williams added 12 points and 14 assists as Syracuse (9-0) extended its home winning streak to 29 games -- the longest in the nation -- and moved head coach Jim Boeheim within one victory of 900. Mike Krzyzewski (936) and Bob Knight (902) are the only Division I men's coaches to reach that milestone. The Orange's next game is at home against Detroit on Monday night.
Canisius (6-2) was off to its best start since 1973-74 and was riding a three-game winning streak on the road. The Golden Griffins haven't beaten a ranked team since a 72-69 win over No. 13 Cincinnati in December 1994.
Billy Baron and Isaac Sosa each scored 15 points to lead Canisius.
