The Syracuse Orangemen put aside any thoughts of an ongoing NCAA investigation as they blew out Montana in their first tournament game. The Orange held the Grizzlies to just 15 first half points and lead by as many as 50 in the second half on their way to the win. Brandon Triche lead all scorers with 20 points and C.J. Fair added 13. Syracuse advance to face California on Saturday with a spot in the East regional up for grabs.
