Orangemen grab much needed win over rival Hoyas

Dome Day out:

Many hoped, but who knew the Syracuse Orangemen would dominate Georgetown's Hoyas 77-70? A win made sweeter because of G-town's number one ranking in the Big East and eighth in the nation over-all. It was reported that Coach Jim Boeheim gave the boys a stern talking to on the flight home from their recent South Florida loss. It paid off in points and also great D.

If you didn't get a chance to get to the game, here's how the day rolled for those at the Carrier Dome:

Getting to the game

Long time Syracuse photographer Chuck Wainwright never gets tired of shooting SU basketball -- especially when it comes to Georgetown.

He grabbed his gear, fired up his Audi and clicked on the heated seats. After rolling down off Onondaga Hill, he snaked his way through the city reaching Adams at Salina, where instead his car crawled like a tortoise. It took 20 minutes to get to Almond Street where all traffic was halted for a couple of blaring Fire trucks.

"This traffic is like St. Paddy's, the tree lighting and the State Fair," Wainwright said.

It was all part of the ritual, including another 10 minutes riding under route 81, before he pulled into the parking lot and greeted the visibly agitated attendant.

"I've been here since 9 a.m. with two guys who don't want to do their jobs; I quit."

Another parking associate, Charles Tyler, said, it wasn't all that bad, they just got off to a bad start with cars already parked and snow still not removed when they arrived. Chaos ensued throughout the Standard Street Lot with people parking every which way.

Girls gone wild

Exiting the lot a couple of coeds were out in #133's driveway shoveling snow in short shorts and boots. Jessica Bertrand and Jazz Moore were renting out their parking to raise money for what else Spring Break. But instead of girls going wild, they were going to North Carolina to work for Habitat for Humanity. Moore a film major at SU said, unfortunately sex sells.
