DaJuan Coleman scored 14 points, Brandon Triche added 12 and Jerami Grant and Trevor Cooney each chipped in 11 for the Orange (6-0), who have won a school-record 26 consecutive games at the Carrier Dome. Rob Murphy, who spent seven years as an assistant coach under Syracuse's Jim Boeheim, got a rude welcome from his mentor for the second straight year.
