SYRACUSE, New York (Ticker) -- Hakim Warrick and 21st-ranked Syracuse again had little difficulty beating intrastate foe Colgate.
Warrick collected 17 points, seven rebounds and five assists in just 24 minutes to lead the Orangemen to a 101-63 rout of the Raiders, their 38th straight win in the series.
Billy Edelin and Gerry McNamara added 14 points apiece for Syracuse (6-1), which won its sixth consecutive game.
McNamara had 11 points, Warrick added 10 and Edelin eight in the first half as the Orangemen stormed to a 52-30 advantage. Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim pulled his starters down the stretch with the game out of hand.
"It was a fun game for us, especially to see all of the walk-ons come in and play," Warrick said.
Syracuse shot 57 percent (45-of-79) and limited Colgate to 40 percent (24-of-60).
"It was a good offensive game for us, our man-to-man (defense) was good," Boeheim said. "Overall, this is the first game this season that we got control of the game early. Usually by this stage of the season, we've had five or six easy games. This is our first one."
Mark Linebaugh scored 23 points and Howard Blue added 16 for the Raiders (5-4), who have not beaten the Orangemen since February 24, 1962.
Syracuse had a 17-11 advantage 5:13 into the contest after Linebaugh sank 2-of-3 free throws, then used a 10-0 run to open things up.
The Orangemen outrebounded the Raiders, 50-27, and outscored them in the paint, 58-22.
"They are a very talented team, we knew that coming in," Colgate coach Emmett Davis said. "We're happy to play them early in the season because they'll really be tough later.
"It's hard to take any positive from a game like this, when you get manhandled in every way, but we won't see a team like them in the Patriot League."
