Syracuse basketball falls out of the AP Top 25 after two losses at MSG

After two losses in less than 24 hours on Thursday and Friday, Syracuse (2-2) has fallen out of the AP Top 25. The Orange opened the season at No. 16 and had risen a spot to No. 15 before this week’s precipitous drop.

The Orange fell to Connecticut on Thursday at Madison Square Garden, 83-76. The loss spoiled Jalen Carey’s homecoming, as he dropped 26 points in a building, a 10-minute train ride from his childhood home in Harlem.

The following night, SU lost to Oregon, 80-65. The Ducks were led by 7-foot-2 freshman Bol Bol in a dominating performance, as he finished with 26 points and nine rebounds. Oregon fell from No. 13 to No. 21 in this week’s poll, though, after it had lost to Iowa on Thursday.
