(Syracuse, NY) - The Notre Dame Fighting Irish were overpowered in a 63-47 loss to the number-nine Syracuse Orange at Carrier Dome in Syracuse.
The Fighting Irish were restricted to 35 percent shooting from the field, a subpar performance credited to a Syracuse frontcourt that combined for 44 points, six blocks, and 21 rebounds.
Jerian Grant led the Fighting Irish with 15 points and five assists.
Jack Cooley was limited in his touches by the Syracuse defense in settling for 10 points and 11 rebounds for Notre Dame.
