The No. 3 Syracuse Orange rolled over the No. 14 Western Michigan Broncos on Thursday, winning 77-53 at Buffalo's First Niagara Center.

Syracuse's backcourt of Tyler Ennis and Trevor Cooney combined for 34 points on 12-for-21 shooting. Ennis had 11 points and five assists by halftime, when the Orange held a 40-21 lead.
