Syracuse beats San Diego State on USS Midway

 

C.J. Fair and Michael Carter-Williams (pictured) each scored 17 points and No. 9 Syracuse blew past No. 20 San Diego State 62-49 on the flight deck of the decommissioned USS Midway on a sunny, windy Sunday afternoon in San Diego. Syracuse (1-0) was just too tall and bulky for the Aztecs (0-1), who couldn’t crack the Orange’s 2-3 zone. Of the three games on ships this year, this was the only one that was completed. On Friday night, the Marquette-Ohio State game on the USS Yorktown in Charleston, S.C., was canceled and the Georgetown-Florida game on the USS Bataan in Jacksonville was called off at halftime, both because of condensation on the court. This game was postponed from Friday night due to the threat of rain. – AP
