SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — Brandon Triche had 23 points and seven assists, James Southerland added 17 points and No. 9 Syracuse beat Bloomsburg 103-60 in an exhibition game Sunday.

The Huskies, who lost 87-65 to Towson in an exhibition Thursday, stayed close against the Orange at the outset. Nasir Jones hit a 3-pointer from the wing and followed with a runner in the lane to move Bloomsburg within 15-12 less than 6 minutes into the game.

Syracuse stretched the lead to 22-12 as Southerland and Triche combined to score 13 points in a 16-5 surge, but Bloomsburg was within 26-20 on Nnamdi Njoku's 3-pointer from the wing at 8:57.

That was it for the Huskies in the half as Syracuse closed with a 34-4 run to make it 60-24.

Michael Carter-Williams had 15 points and eight assists with two turnovers, C.J. Fair had 12 points and freshman Jerami Grant had 11 points. Redshirt freshman guard Trevor Cooney, back after a tonsillectomy, played 23 minutes and scored six points, hitting 2 of 5 from long range.

Dontahe Jordan had 14 points, Lorenzo Christmas 13 and Wes Lyons 12 to lead Bloomsburg.

Orange coach Jim Boeheim said he planned to play nine players all season, and he didn't waver in this one as nine players logged double-digit minutes.

Bloomsburg, whose tallest starter was 6-foot-6, had trouble making any kind of penetration against the bigger Orange. Syracuse forced 16 turnovers in the opening half, committed only five and took 13 more shots, hitting 25 of 37 (67.6 percent). Syracuse, which beat Pace 99-63 on Thursday night, opens its season Friday at San Diego State and returns home to face Wagner nine days later.
