Syracuse wins hyped NIT matchup with Greensboro

(TSX / STATS) -- SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Jim Boeheim 1, Greensboro 0.

In the most hyped first-round game in the National Invitation Tournament, Andrew White and Tyus Battle combined for 54 points Wednesday night to lead the No. 1 overall seed Syracuse to a 90-77 victory over UNC Greensboro before 4,288 fans at the Carrier Dome.

The game garnered extra attention because of Boeheim's comments about Greensboro at last week's Atlantic Coast Conference tournament. The Syracuse coach insisted the ACC tourney should be played in major media markets, saying "There's no value to playing in Greensboro. None."
