Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - In fourth months, the Syracuse University men's basketball team essentially went from the biggest stage, to probably one of the smallest.

The Final Four at the Georgia Dome to McGill's Love Competition Hall with a capacity of 950.

The Orange started their exhibition tour north of the border Wednesday evening in Quebec.

Aside from C.J. Fair, Jim Boeheim has many young players getting set to play big roles for his team.

The hall of fame head coach went with Tyler Ennis and Trevor Cooney as his starting backcourt and they join Fair, DaJuan Coleman and Rakeem Christmas in the frontcourt.

Ennis, the Orange’s point guard of the future finished with 11 points against McGill and the Orange opened the game on a 15-1 run.

Fair finished with 13 points but appeared to twist his left ankle later in the first half and sat out the second half just as a precaution.

Jerami Grant stepped in and stepped up as he led all scorers with 17 points.

SU dominates McGill in an 80 to 40 victory.
