SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) The first collegiate start for freshman guard Joe Girard III couldn’t have gone much better.
Girard made five 3-pointers and scored 24 points in his first collegiate start, and Syracuse came out blistering to beat Seattle 89-67 on Saturday in the first meeting between the schools.
“He was good. He made shots,” Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said. “Joe’s not going to play like that every might, maybe he will, we’ll see. I think one of the reasons Joe has an easier adjustment is he had to do everything, every game, for four years.
