Syracuse v. Colgate - What I Learned

Syracuse and Colgate played a basketball game Monday night, and Syracuse dominated from the opening tip, winning 86-51. Here's what I learned from the game:
  • Absolutely nothing
It actually felt good to learn nothing. Colgate was outmatched and outclassed in every aspect of the game. Syracuse coasted for stretches and didn't shoot it well from behind the three point arc, or they could have gone over the century mark.

The game was actually incredibly boring to watch and you know what - I'm OK with that. This win felt like one from the late 80s. It was never in doubt and a superior team imposed their will early and beat down an inferior opponent. Those days have been few and far between and you know what, it feels great that they are back.

Cornell should pose more problems on Wednesday, but this boring lifeless blow out was wonderful to see, even if it wasn't that much fun to watch. I'll take more of these any day.
