NO. 12 SYRACUSE 83, RUTGERS 74: Freshman forward Carmelo Anthony matched his career high with 30 points and added 14 rebounds and six assists for the Orangemen, who finished their first perfect season (17-0) in the Carrier Dome since it opened in 1980.
Anthony had his 18th double double and eclipsed Lawrence Moten's school record of 583 points by a freshman, set in 1991-92.
Syracuse (23-4, 13-3 Big East) became the seventh Division I program with 1,600 wins and the crowd of 33,071 set an NCAA on-campus record. The loss ended a dismal season for Rutgers (12-16, 4-12), which finished last in the West Division and failed to make the conference tournament.
