Syracuse routs Middle Tennessee State to reach Sweet 16

ST. LOUIS (AP) There is no more looking backward for Syracuse these days.

No more time spent pondering the past.

After suffocating No. 15 seed Middle Tennessee State with their trademark zone defense in a 75-50 thrashing on Sunday night to punch their ticket to the Sweet 16, the only thing the No. 10 seed Orange are focused on is just how much farther they can go in the NCAA Tournament.
