White, Syracuse hammer Holy Cross

(TSX / STATS) -- SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Thanks to fifth-year graduate transfer Andrew White, Syracuse's offense hasn't skipped a beat despite losing its top three scorers from last year's Final Four team.

White, a 6-foot-7 wing who spent last season at Nebraska after transferring from Kansas, scored 16 of his game-high 19 points in the first half as the 18th-ranked Orange built a comfortable lead and cruised to a 90-46 win over the Holy Cross Crusaders on Tuesday night in a Brooklyn Holiday Hoops Invitational game before 21,405 fans at the Carrier Dome.

"We have a lot of guys who are capable shooters, and when the ball moves and you have a lot of talent, it gives guys an opportunity to get better shots than they would if they were focal point of most defenses," said White, who has scored a team-high 36 points in two games. "I think that's kind of what you're seeing early on."
