Kevin Ollie had no timetable on Alterique Gilbert's return from injury. "There's no answer. I just think he wants to get healthy. The ultimate decision-maker [on a return] is Alterique."

Battle says he must've had 'dead legs' on missed dunk (1:18)

Jim Boeheim: "I don't think any two teams are going to put as many people in the Garden as [Syracuse and UConn] did tonight."

Syracuse puts away UConn at the Garden, 72-63, behind the new Orange power trio of Tyus Battle (no surprise, 22 points), Matt Moyer (wait, 18?) and Oshae Brissett (16). The Garden was rocking, and the old Big East spectacle was there if you squinted, but, alas, the stakes were relatively modest this time around. Perhaps next time....

Moyer climbs the ladder for right-handed dunk (0:36)

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Tyus Battle leads all scorers with 22 for Syracuse, but it's safe to say teammate Matt Moyer's been far more aggressive against UConn than his stats would lead one to expect. The 6-foot-8 sophomore is going to the rim with tenacity.

UConn closed the half on a 9-3 run, but Syracuse still leads 40-29 at the intermission. Can the Huskies really get the job done on offense against the Cuse zone? Not if Kevin Ollie's guys continue to give the ball away on 36 percent of their trips. On the plus side for UConn, Jalen Adams is a perfect 4-of-4 from the floor.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

With Matt Moyer and Oshae Brissette leading the way, Syracuse has deftly carved up the UConn 2-3 zone early. I suppose Jim Boeheim's players do see that defense from time to time in practice. Kevin Ollie noticed, and the Huskies are now in man.

If you missed it live, promise me you'll look up the put-back slam that Matt Moyer just recorded for Syracuse against UConn. You will not be disappointed. Goodness...

Nightcap tipping soon here at the Garden for the Jimmy V Classic. Syracuse and UConn will pit size (Paschal Chukwu and Marek Dolezaj for 'Case) against space (Jalen Adams, Terry Larrier and Christian Vital). A festive crowd's on hand and primed for some old-school Big East flavor from these ACC and American teams.
