Syracuse 72, Connecticut 63

NEW YORK -- Oshae Brissett had 16 points and 10 rebounds and Tyus Battle scored 22 points to lead Syracuse past UConn 72-63 on Tuesday night in the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden.

The former Big East rivals failed to play a familiar classic at the Garden that had defined their series as one of the best in basketball. But fans of both teams enjoyed the give-and-take chants that filled a mostly full MSG on the night.

The Orange, coming off a 16-point loss to No. 2 Kansas, controlled from tipoff in a sloppy outing where they made only four 3-pointers and had nine assists.

Matthew Moyer scored 18 points and the Orange scored some easy buckets late in the second half to never let this win get away from them.

Jalen Adams led the Huskies (6-3) with 22 points and Christian Vital had 17.

Vital gave UConn a brief sign of life with a pair of 3s in the second half that sliced the deficit to 11. Vital fed Adams on the fastbreak for an easy bucket to make it a nine-point game and MSG was filled with "Let's Go Huskies!" chants.

But UConn couldn't do much more offensively - and a big block by Syracuse forward Brissett and a UConn shot-clock violation slowed the Huskies' run. Coach Kevin Ollie stomped his feet so loudly in annoyance over one play it could be heard 85 feet away in a noisy MSG.

Brissett, one of the top freshmen in the ACC, capitalized with a dunk that stretched the lead back to double digits.

Brissett and Battle each scored 12 points in the first half to help the Orange lead 40-29.

UConn and Syracuse had regular matchups at Madison Square Garden when they both were in the Big East. The greatest of all their matchups was the 2009 Big East Tournament quarterfinal that Syracuse won 127-117 in six overtimes. MSG played clips from the classic on the big screen. Syracuse leads the all-time series 56-38.
