SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Michael Carter-Williams scored a career-high 18 points and added 13 assists and No. 7 Syracuse beat Central Connecticut State 96-62 on Monday, giving Orange coach Jim Boeheim his 902nd career win.
Boeheim tied Bob Knight for second all-time in victories among Division I men's coaches. Duke's Mike Krzyzewski leads with 939.
Syracuse (12-1) completed its nonconference schedule with its 32nd straight home win, the longest active streak in the nation. Boeheim's first chance to pass Knight comes in the Orange's Big East opener on Wednesday night at home against Rutgers.
CCSU (4-7) lost its fourth straight and was overmatched against the much taller Orange after a strong start. Senior forward Joe Efese was the tallest Blue Devil in the starting lineup at 6-foot-6, dwarfed by a Syracuse front line of 6-8 C.J. Fair, 6-9 Dajuan Coleman and 6-9 Rakeem Christmas.
