Orangemen Eliminate Irish From Big East Tourney

NEW YORK - Jason Hart scored a career-high 24 points as eighth seed Syracuse opened the Big East Conference Tournament with an 84-66 victory over ninth-seeded Notre Dame in New York.

Syracuse (19-11), which has to perform well in the tournament to gain a chance at getting back to the NCAA Tournament, scored the first 10 points of the game and cruised, avenging a pair of regular-season losses against the Irish (14-13).

Syracuse meets top-seed Villanova in the quarterfinals on Thursday. Notre Dame was led by Admore White's 12 points, while Pat Garrity was held to just 10 points - just one more than his season-low.
