SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- After falling behind by 10 points at the outset against No. 4 Syracuse, Indiana coach Tom Crean had his Hoosiers right where he wanted at halftime -- down by just two baskets. Then he went into the locker room and didnt like what he heard from his youthful Hoosiers -- silence. "Frankly, the halftime locker room for a team that had come on the road with the fourth-ranked team in the country and was going toe-to-toe with them, I read it right there," Crean said. "I dont know if its the inexperience. I dont know if its the anxiety. I dont know if there were too many guys that didnt believe they could win the game. I dont know if the guys were shocked that we were in the game, but that was as poor a second half performance spirit-wise ... that Ive been a part of in a long time." The Orange used a 12-0 spurt to break open a tie game and extended the surge to 25-4 behind their backcourt of Trevor Cooney and freshman Tyler Ennis, who combined for 38 points, nine assists and eight steals. After Indianas Noah Vonleh tied it at 33-all early in the second half, Syracuse began its run to take command and incite the crowd. Dajuan Coleman started it with a putback and Cooney followed with a steal and 3-pointer, then went 3 of 3 from the free throw line after being fouled on another 3-point attempt. C.J. Fairs driving layup with 13:18 left gave the Orange a 45-33 lead. Ennis had three steals during the spurt and the Orange forced the Hoosiers into a shot-clock violation as they could muster nothing offensively. "Ive never been part of a game where a team was as different in one half as they were in the other," Crean said. "The first half, after getting down 10-0, we started to play the game the way we practiced, the way we prepared. We wanted to get the ball inside. We had their front line in foul trouble. We were getting to the foul line. We were right where we needed to be. "We wanted to continue to build on what we were doing in the first half and we couldnt have been more opposite. Three of our first four shots were 3s. We got away from what was working. We let them get momentum." Indiana (6-2) had only lost, 59-58, to No. 12 Connecticut at Madison Square Garden in the championship game of the 2K Sports Classic Benefiting Wounded Warrior Project. Ennis hit a 3 and had a steal and layup, and Cooney followed with a 3 to boost the lead to 53-36 midway through the second half. Seconds later, Cooney was slammed into the stanchion on a fast break by Austin Etherington, drawing a flagrant foul on the play. "Because its Indiana, its kind of like a rivalry, and theyre a really good team," said Cooney, who scored 21 points. "We wanted to come out and prove to everyone that were a good team." Syracuse, fresh from winning the Maui Invitational, registered seven blocked shots, 10 steals and matched the nations top team on the glass with 29 rebounds with just a 12-11 deficit on the offensive glass. Indiana shot 15 of 41 (36.6 per cent) and was 6 of 13 from the field in the second half in getting outscored 36-23. "We finally got our offence going a little bit, made a couple of baskets, but our defence was really the difference for the first time this year," Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said. "Coming back from Hawaii, I thought the way everybody held their legs was pretty good. Our energy level was pretty good." So, too, was that of the crowd of 26,414, whose deafening roars in the second half rocked the Carrier Dome as the Orange assumed control. "We just get up for these games," Ennis said. Syracuse (8-0) has won 46 straight nonconference games at home. "The first three, four possessions. Im not a big believer in the first 5 minutes, but this one was," Crean said. "This is one of those games where the first few possessions were going to be absolutely crucial in the second half, and they were. And it totally went the other way. Im unbelievably disappointed in the lack of fight in the second half." Fair finished with 15 points but had to sit 5 minutes in the second half after picking up his fourth foul, one of four Syracuse players who finished the game with four. Vonleh had 17 points for the Hoosiers, 13 from the free throw line, and Yogi Ferrell added 12 points, only three in the second half -- a 3-pointer with 1:59 remaining. Indiana came in leading the nation averaging 50.3 rebounds a game and in rebound margin at plus-18. Indiana was fifth in field goal percentage defence (35.1) and the Orange shot 51.1 per cent (24 of 47). LeBron James Shoes Outlet .

The job now involves finding a way to slow down Andrew Luck.The Colts (5-3) and Luck will face the Giants (3-4) at MetLife Stadium on Monday night with both teams looking to rebound.Indianapolis is coming off a 51-34 loss to Pittsburgh, while the Giants are returning from a bye week seeking to snap a two-game losing streak that featured one-sided losses to NFC East rivals Philadelphia and Dallas.Its time for both teams to start jelling with the stretch run on tap.This is exciting, Giants quarterback Eli Manning said. We have a good opportunity ahead of us. The way we have played to start the year, we have made it tough on ourselves, but we have to get hot. All we can do is worry about this next game. We have to handle our business and start playing at a higher level. The Giants need to that on both sides of the ball if they expect to get past the Colts, who have the NFLs top-ranked offence and the No. 1 rated passing game with Luck at quarterbackNew York has been outscored 58-21 in its last two games as the offence failed to make big plays and the defence has not stopped the run.Before the loss to the Steelers, and Luck and the Colts made big plays on both sides of the ball in winning five straight games.Luck has been outstanding. He set a team record last weekend, throwing for at least 300 yards in his sixth straight game, breaking Peyton Mannings mark.He has a great competitive fire about him, Colts coach Chuck Pagano said of his humble quarterback. He loves winning. He is not afraid of hard work. We all know the talent you can see on tape. He is big and strong. He is athletic and obviously a very bright guy. His intangibles are off the charts. The question remains can Eli Manning and the Giants new West Coast offence put up points against a suddenly suspect Indy defence. New York will not have No. 1 halfback Rashad Jennings (knee) and it is still looking to prove it can overcome the loss of explosive receiver Victor Cruz for the season with another knee injury.The bottom line is the Giants are facing missing the playoffs for the third straight year with nine games to go in the regular season.ddddddddddddIts your guys job to panic, and you guys do that very well, Giants veteran defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka said to reporters. For us, theres parity in the league, you can talk about all of those things, injuries or whatever. The fact remains that we have a lot of games left on the schedule, weve got championship calibre talent in here, I still believe that 100 per cent, so we go out, we work, we put wins together and all of a sudden the perception changes. Some things to watch in this half-Manning Bowl:GIANTS DBs: Starting cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has been bothered by back and hamstring injuries in recent weeks. It remains to be seen if the bye week helped him get healthy. If he is still limited, the Giants are really in trouble. Zack Bowman would get more playing time and it might even force the defence to use Mike Harris, signed off the Lions practice squad this week.COLTS Defence: A week after shutting out Cincinnati, Indianapolis allowed Pittsburgh 51 points and the Steelers had 639 yards in total offence. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 522 yards and six touchdowns, both franchise records. Indianapolis pressure defence failed to register a sack after getting 20 in the previous five-game winning streak.BACK TO THE MEADOWLANDS: Colts halfback Ahmad Bradshaw and receiver Hakeem Nicks were drafted by the Giants and spent a combined 11 seasons with the team. Both were members of the Super Bowl championship team in February 2012. Bradshaw joined the Colts last season, while Nicks was signed this year.FUTURE GAMES: Indianapolis has a game lead over Houston in the AFC South heading into the weekend. The Texans are home against Philadelphia (5-2). A Colts win would at least maintain the lead going into a bye week and give them breathing room heading into a game against New England. The Giants have Seattle, San Francisco and Dallas on tap after the Colts.HILTON WATCH: Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton leads the NFL with 866 yards receiving, a 16.3-yard average. His 53 catches are a team high, 15 more than Reggie Wayne. The Giants leading receiver is Rueben Randle, who has 34 catches for 321 yards, a 9.4-yard average. Giants general manager Jerry Reese complained about the teams lack of big plays on offence this season.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFLx ' ' '
