Syracuse women open season with dominating win over Monmouth, 87-46 (full coverage)

The Syracuse women’s basketball team finally got an opportunity to see how its new pieces fit together on the court after an offseason full of roster turnover in an 87-46 win over Monmouth on Wednesday in the Carrier Dome.

All eleven available players on the Syracuse roster made an appearance and scored in Wednesday night’s win — ten of which made their first career appearance in an Orange uniform.

‘Cuse’s defensive effort was on full display, as the Orange forced 33 turnovers throughout the game. Teisha Hyman led the effort with four steals in her first game back since Feb. 27, 2020. She finished the game just shy of a double-double with nine points, nine rebounds, four steals and three assists.

Three players scored in double digits with Chrislyn Carr leading the way with 15 points shooting 7-for-10 from the field. Graduate student Jayla Thornton added 12 points and Christianna Carr had 11.

Sophomore Ava Irvin and freshmen duo Nyah Wilson and Julianna Walker each scored their first collegiate career points.
