WMU can't overcome Syracuse defense, loses 77-53

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Western Michigan was on a roll and seemed to have all the right pieces to give Syracuse a struggle in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

The Broncos had fifth-year seniors David Brown, the Mid-American scoring champion, and hulking center Shayne Whittington to operate their inside-out game, and they were used to the Orange's zone defense.

None of that mattered on Thursday as Trevor Cooney scored 18 points, fellow guard Tyler Ennis had 16, and the Orange defense clamped down in a 77-53 victory over the MAC champ.
