SU-Iona Preview

posted by Rob Wegman - 

Game 2 of the Cuse basketball season is tonight at the Dome.

Following Friday night’s season opening beatdown of Cornell, the Orange welcome Iona to Central New York tonight at 7.

Unlike the opener, tonight’s game against the Gaels will feature only one Boeheim.

Jim’s son Jimmy scored the first 5 points for the Big Red and finished with 11 for the game but Syracuse won going away by the final of 77-45.

Tyus Battle’s 18 points led Syracuse, with grad transfer Geno Thorpe and freshman Oshae Brissett also hitting double figures.

A similar result should be in store this evening, as the Cuse ease into the season with their 2nd of 5 home tuneups ahead of the Maryland-Kansas-UCONN trifecta a couple weeks from now.

Iona is 0-1 after losing to Albany in their debut Friday night.
