The status of Syracuse’s 90-39 win over Lincoln on Dec. 3 has been changed from a scrimmage to an official game, Syracuse Athletics announced in a press release.
The Orange’s home-opener was moved from the Carrier Dome to the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center when “a few droplets of water” were spotted on the court by a game official. The game was previously designated as a “private scrimmage” yesterday before being changed.
The Carrier Dome’s $118 million renovation project is still in its final stages, which includes spot sealing the roof, SU Athletics said in a release yesterday. The men’s basketball game against Niagara tonight will be played as scheduled.
Syracuse’s women’s basketball team is now 2-0 following the updated status. Freshmen Kamilla Cardoso and Priscilla Williams had 25 and 24 points, respectively. The two earned their first career starts for the Orange. Tiana Mangakahia had eight points in her second game back after missing all of last season with breast cancer.
The Orange return to the Carrier Dome to play Penn State on Sunday, their final nonconference game of the season.
