Streak snapped: Syracuse falls to Colgate, 100-85, for first time since 1962 (full coverage)

Syracuse’s 50-year winning streak against Colgate came to a shocking end on Saturday.

Syracuse had beaten its Upstate New York neighbor 54 consecutive times with Colgate’s last win over the Orange coming in the 1961-62 season.

When Syracuse ran out to an early 17-2 lead over the Raiders, win No. 55 in the streak seemed all but assured.

But Colgate, which had missed its first 12 shots from the 3-point arc, rallied to take a halftime lead and then went on to hand Syracuse a stunning 100-85 loss at the Carrier Dome on Saturday.

Colgate’s last win over Syracuse before Saturday was a 67-63 win on Feb. 24, 1962. Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim was a senior at Lyons High School.

Jack Ferguson led Colgate with 25 points on 6-for-13 shooting from 3-point range. As a team, the Raiders made 18 out of 43 3-point shots despite missing their first 12 attempts from outside the 3-point line. Nelly Cummings scored 18 points for the Raiders.

Syracuse fell to 2-1 with the loss, while Colgate improved to 3-2.
