SYRACUSE — Trevor Cooney had seven 3-pointers and 27 points, both career highs, and No. 8 Syracuse beat pesky Cornell 82-60 on Friday night in the season opener for both teams.

Syracuse, playing its first season in the Atlantic Coast Conference, leads the all-time series against Cornell 88-31 and has won 34 straight against the Big Red.

It was the first game between the teams in three years, but the Big Red, 5-68 all-time against teams ranked in the Top 25, was up for the challenge, building a lead that ballooned to as many as 14 in the first half behind sharpshooting Nolan Cressler.

Syracuse turned the tables with an 18-5 run early in the second to take control. Cooney scored eight points in the surge and nabbed two steals, finishing the second with a court-long dash and two-handed dunk to put the Orange up 60-48 with 11:38 to go and they steadily pulled away.
