BOX SCORE

After a triple-double in an opening-round rout of Dubois Dream and a 13-point effort in an overtime win over Gael Nation in Round 2, Brandon Triche had been quiet for the first 35 minutes of the Super 16 in Brooklyn.

But, that was before Triche drilled a go-ahead 3-pointer with just under a minute remaining and scored his team’s final seven points to give #3 seed Boeheim’s Army a lead they would never relinquish in a 65-61 victory over #7 seed Team Fancy.

Eric Devendorf, who scored 23 points in the second-round, overtime victory, poured in a game-high 19 points in the win for the Syracuse University alumni squad, which returns to the regional title game for the first time since 2015.

Ra’Shad James scored 14 points in the loss for Team Fancy in a back-and-forth contest that featured both nine ties and lead changes.

Boeheim’s Alumni advances to play Team FOE in the Northeast Region championship game on Sunday, July 23rd at 2:00 PM ET, live on ESPN.
