Syracuse vs Baylor live First Meeting: Demetris Nichols lit into the Bears back in December of 2006. Playing inside the Carrier Dome, the senior scored a career-best 28 points as Syracuse beat Baylor, 94-71. Nichols opened the second half by pouring in 10 consecutive points in just over two and a half minutes.
Meanwhile, the Bears dropped another game to a ranked opponent, making it 23 straight defeats to teams inside the top 25. And to make matters worse, Baylor experienced flight issues, missed scheduled time at the Dome the night before the game and had to wear Syracuse gear during a pregame practice because the Bears’ clothes were back in Waco, Texas.
Outside of Nichols’ stellar night, the Orange also saw double-figure-scoring totals from Paul Harris (15), Darryl (MOOKIE!) Watkins (15), Eric Devendorf (11), and Andy Rautins (10).
Despite finishing sixth in the Big East, winning 10 games in league play as well as a game in the conference tourney, that Syracuse team was relegated to the NIT. The season came to a wrap with a loss at Clemson in the quarterfinals. (The NCAA says 22 of those victories didn’t happen, by the way. Sure, okay.)
Last Meeting: Maui wowie. (don’t get too many ideas — Utah’s laws don’t look like Colorado’s)
Syracuse outlasted No. 18 Baylor in the finals of the Maui Invitational, 74-67. It was the Orange’s third Maui title and it came on the back of C.J. Fair.
Fair tallied 24 points against the Bears, 14 of which coming in the second half as No. 8 Syracuse pulled away for the victory. It was Fair who hit a jump shot to stop a Bears’ 10-2 run that had Baylor back to within six points of Syracuse late in the second. Time and time again it seemed like Fair was in the right spot at the right time to help the Orange secure the championship.
For his three-day efforts in Hawaii, Fair was named tourney MVP.
Jerami Grant chipped in with 19 points and Trevor (Terry) Cooney and Tyler Ennis each added 11 points of their own for Syracuse, which would go on to start the season 25-0. Ultimately, the Orange ran out of gas by March and was eventually beaten by Dayton in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Head Coaches: SU: Jim Boeheim (43rd year, 1,047-384; Baylor: Scott Drew (317–208— 337–219 overall)
Coach Bio: Scott Drew is a Butler University grad but the coach’s son never actually played ball for the Bulldogs. He did, however, join the basketball staff and spent two years as a student assistant.
Post graduation in 1993, Scott joined his father Homer’s staff at Valparaiso University. During his nine years as assistant at Valpo, Scott Drew developed a reputation as a top-level recruiter and as someone who was bred to be head coach. That came to reality when dad Homer officially retired, allowing for son Scott to take over the Crusaders.
However, after just one season leading Valpo, one in which ended in the NIT, Drew was lured away by Baylor in 2003.
At the time, it was a risky move for Drew. Taking the job in August, the new head coach had little time to prep before the season, and had to deal with NCAA ramifications brought on by the previous head coach, Dave Bliss. That scandal saw Bliss attempt to cover up the murder of one of his players which was committed by another one of his players.
When Drew took over in the fall of ‘03, the program’s top players transferred, plus he had to deal with probation for seven more years, and he and his staff dealt with recruiting restrictions. Furthermore, Baylor could only play conference games, with no post-season eligibility, in the 2005-06 season.
It’s amazing, given where Baylor was as a basketball program, that Drew has since guided the Bears to seven NCAA tourney appearances since 2008, reaching the Elite Eight in 2012 (winning the NIT the next year).
