SAN DIEGO — C.J. Fair and Michael Carter-Williams 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.


The Orange (1-0) effectively put it away when Fair made a jumper to make it 17-4 with 11:30 to go in the first half. He had nine points at that point.


Syracuse 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.


No. 2 Louisville 79, Manhattan 51

LOUISVILLE, Ky.— Russ Smith scored 23 points and Peyton Siva added 10 points and 10 assists as No. 2 Louisville pulled away from Manhattan for a season-opening 79-51 victory on Sunday.


Chane Behanan had nine rebounds and eight points for the Cardinals. They won their ninth straight season opener and beat the Jaspers in the first meeting between the schools since 2002.


No. 4 Ohio St. 82, Albany 60

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Deshaun Thomas scored 13 of his 19 points in a 17-2 run to end the half, leading No. 4 Ohio State to an 82-60 victory over Albany on Sunday in the Buckeyes' belated season opener.


They were supposed to play on Friday night against Marquette in aboard the USS Yorktown but condensation on the court led to that game being canceled.


Thomas, one of the stars of the Buckeyes' Final Four run last season, hit just one of his first six shots and Ohio State trailed 23-22 late in half. But he asserted himself as the Buckeyes took control.


No. 10 Florida 84, Alabama State 35

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Kenny Boynton scored 22 points and No. 10 Florida cruised past Alabama State 84-35 on Sunday in a late opener for the Gators.


Florida was supposed to begin the season Friday against Georgetown aboard the USS Bataan, but the game was canceled at halftime because there was moisture on the court.


No. 11 North Carolina 80, Florida Atlantic 56

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — James Michael McAdoo had 19 points and 11 rebounds to help No. 11 North Carolina beat Florida Atlantic 80-56 on Sunday.


Reggie Bullock added 16 for the Tar Heels (2-0), who shot 44 percent from both the field and the foul line. Still, North Carolina led by double figures throughout the second half before blowing the game open in the final 7 minutes.


No. 12 Arizona 82, Charleston Southern 73

TUCSON, Ariz. — Mark Lyons scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half of his debut for Arizona and the 12th-ranked Wildcats escaped with an 82-73 season-opening victory over Charleston Southern on Sunday.


No. 19 Baylor 78, Jackson St. 47

WACO, Texas — Pierre Jackson had 25 points and seven assists for No. 19 Baylor, and the Bears rolled to a 78-47 victory over Jackson State on Sunday.


Jackson, the senior guard named the preseason Big 12 player of the year, scored the game's first five points — on a free throw, a jumper and a tip-in in the first 3 minutes — and the Bears (2-0) never trailed.


No. 23 Wisconsin 87, Southeastern Louisiana 47

MADISON, Wis. — Junior Ben Brust had 14 points and 11 rebounds, and No. 23 Wisconsin scored the first 19 points in an 87-47 rout of Southeastern Louisiana in a season opener Sunday.


Jared Berggren led the Badgers with 19 points and fellow senior Mike Bruesewitz added 10 in a 13-minute appearance. Bruesewitz cut his lower right leg during practice Oct. 9 and returned Friday.


No. 24 Cincinnati 80, Tennessee-Martin 57

CINCINNATI — Cashmere Wright scored 16 points and Sean Kilpatrick added 14 as No. 24 Cincinnati cruised to an 80-57 season-opening win over Tennessee-Martin on Sunday.


Villanova 80, Marshall 68

VILLANOVA — Villanova freshman Ryan Arcidiacono scored 20 of his game-high 25 points in the first half to lead the Wildcats to an 80-68 victory over Marshall in the second round of the 2K Sports Classic on Sunday.
