John Gillon explodes for 43 points in Syracuse's overtime win

Syracuse Orange senior guard John Gillon was on fire Wednesday as he scored a career-high 43 points with 9 three-pointers and 9 assists in an overtime win over the North Carolina State Wolfpack.

What It Means:

Gillon was unstoppable as he went 10-for-13 from the floor including 9-for-10 from three while sinking all 14 of his free throws, as he utterly destroyed his previous season-high of 23 points. In fact, Wednesday was only the 10th time all year the former Colorado State Ram had even reached double-digits in points.

Gillon is averaging only 10.4 points and 1.7 three-pointers per game on 40.8 percent field goal shooting even after his explosion on Wednesday.
