Syracuse, NY (Sports Network) - Syracuse faced its most familiar opponent on Sunday and came away with its customary lopsided win.
James Southerland poured in 18 points to lead the sixth-ranked Orange in an 87-51 rout of Colgate at the Carrier Dome.
Brandon Triche added 15 points and Michael Carter-Williams dished out a career-high 13 assists for Syracuse (4-0), which faced Colgate for the 165th time and posted its 47th straight win over its nearby Central New York rival.
The Orange also extended their home winning streak to 25 straight games, the longest in the history of the Carrier Dome, which opened in 1980. Syracuse hasn't lost at home since a 64-56 setback to Georgetown on Feb. 9, 2011.
Murphy Burnatowski, John Brandenburg and Pat Moore each scored eight points to lead Colgate (3-4), which had a two-game win streak stopped. The Raiders haven't beaten Syracuse since 1962 and haven't lost by single-digits since a 73-65 decision in November 2000.
