Chinonso Obokoh, sitting on a career-high nine points of his own, stood at the opposite foul line and held both hands in the air.Syracuse led by 28 against one of the worst teams in Division I and a game that started off sluggish for the Orange was now anything but.Using a 51-point second half, SU (9-3) overcame a rocky first-half shooting performance to blow out Montana State (5-7), 82-60 in the Carrier Dome. Five different orange scored in double figures, including Obokoh, Dajuan Coleman and Tyler Lydon, as Syracuse dominated a physically inferior team down low.The Orange trudged through a first half in which it shot 3-of-13 from behind the arc and 11-of-31 overall. A decided size advantage inside against a far inferior Montana State team wasn’t being exploited, apart from the occasional drive, draw a foul and finish at the rim routine SU executed twice.Still, the Orange carried a 14-point lead into halftime as the Bobcats weren’t much better. One of the worst teams in Division I, luckily for Syracuse, couldn’t take advantage of an SU team flashing the weaknesses that have put it behind this season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse began the second half 5-of-7 from the field, courtesy of three Coleman buckets down low. Montana State hit a trio of deep balls before the under-16 timeout itself, but the Orange, via its recuperating big man, found the formula to keep the Bobcats out of reach before pulling away.The seemingly inevitable Syracuse blowout was finally gaining traction as Gbinije caught fire from deep and Frank Howard attacked the rim for an and-one of his own. Trevor Cooney’s 3 with 12:24 left broke the Carrier Dome’s lull and forced a Montana State timeout. The rout was on as the Orange led by 24.Syracuse coasted to the finish, with its backups owning the latter part of the second half before the walk-ons took over. Freshman Ky Feldman laid in a contested shot with 1.3 seconds left and the crowd exploded, as Syracuse cruised into Christmas on a high.

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandANAHEIM — Tommy La Stella made it back to the Angels’ lineup just in time to go into the winter with peace of mind.La Stella, who broke his leg nearly three months ago, was the designated hitter in the Angels’ 4-0 loss to the Houston Astros on Friday night.“It was cool,” La Stella said. “I’m not going to lie. I had some butterflies. It felt kind of like Opening Day. But it was good. It was a long process so it was nice to be back out there.”La Stella, who had not seen any live pitching since some simulated games three weeks ago, went hitless in four at-bats. He was part of an Angels offense that mustered just three hits and did not get a runner into scoring position. As the season’s final month turned to a few weeks and then to a few games, La Stella said he never considered just shutting it down. Getting back, even for a few games, would be worth it.“The goal is just to get out there, get some game reps and get the visual of being on the field and seeing the pitcher,” he said. “Let that be something I can take into the offseason.”La Stella also takes the confidence of his breakthrough season into the winter. After being a utility player and a backup throughout his career, La Stella established himself as an everyday player. He is eligible for arbitration this winter, set to make at least $3 million in his final year before free agency.“I’d say I took some steps in the right direction, personally,” La Stella said. “But there are things I can improve on. I’m sure everybody in this room feels the same way. I’m no different. There is definitely some stuff I’d like to continue to progress on next year.”Although La Stella came up empty Friday, he hit a couple of balls hard.“He looked completely normal,” Manager Brad Ausmus said. “Tommy looked like he didn’t miss a beat. His timing looked good. His at-bats looked exactly the same as they did back in June.”Related Articles They wasted a strong outing from Patrick Sandoval, who gave up one run in 3-1/3 innings before reaching his pitch-limit.La Stella played for the first time since July 2, the end of an emotional three-day span.On June 30, La Stella learned that he had been selected for his first career All-Star Game. The next day, the entire team was shaken by the death of Tyler Skaggs. The day after that the Angels took the field again, and La Stella fouled a ball off his shin, breaking his leg.Not only was he unable to play in the All-Star Game – he still attended – but he was sidelined for virtually the entire second half of the season, as the Angels’ playoff hopes faded.The initial prognosis for La Stella’s injury left open the possibility that he would be back around the beginning of September, but he felt continued discomfort throughout the month.

He allowed a second-inning homer to AL MVP candidate Alex Bregman and nothing else. He came out in the fourth inning with 61 pitches, about the limit he’s throughout September.Sandoval posted a 5.03 ERA in the majors over the final two months of the season, including a 3.68 ERA in the six games after he moved to the middle of the rubber.“I saw someone who despite the young age and experience, competes extremely well,” Ausmus said. “He had a very good changeup and tonight the slider was the better pitch, so he’s got the prospect of having multiple weapons. I think he probably impressed quite a few people here.”ALSOBrian Goodwin, who came out of Thursday’s game with back spasms, reported improvement on Friday, according to Ausmus.
