SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Buddy Boeheim made four 3-pointers and finished with 23 points, Marek Dolezaj had 20 points — including two free throws with 22 seconds left — and Syracuse from a 13-point second-half deficit to beat Bryant 85-84 in the season opener for both teams. Dolezaj, a 6-foot-10 senior, added a career-high nine assists and tied his career best with five steals. Quincy Guerrier scored 15 points and grabbed a career-high 12 rebounds and Alan Griffin had 14 points and 12 rebounds in his Syracuse debut. Griffin, a 6-foot-5 transfer from Illinois, hit three 3-pointers. Chris Childs, a juco transfer, hit 5 of 9 from behind the arc and finished with 18 points in his Bryant debut.

During a halftime interview Syracuse head Coach Jim Boeheim says the team should have just canceled the game after not having practice in 14 days to do COVID19 protocols.
