Facebook Twitter Google+ Behind one of SU’s best offensive half of the season, Syracuse (7-4) raced out to a 52-24 lead at the break and cruised to a 105-57 win over Eastern Michigan (6-5) in the Carrier Dome on Monday night. The Orange assisted on all 19 field goals in the first half and hit eight 3-pointers in the opening 20 minutes. The rest was a formality, even without Tyler Lydon, who didn’t play in the second half due to a strained right Achilles suffered late in the first period.Here are three quick takeaways from SU’s dominant win over the Eagles.The status of Tyler LydonAfter coming down flat on his right foot following a rebound late in the first half, Lydon limped off the court and headed to the locker room with trainer Brad Pike. He hobbled into the tunnel under his own power and didn’t return to the court until the second half was just starting.Lydon was being held out as a precaution and would be available if the game was closer, per the ESPNU broadcast. Instead, with Syracuse leading comfortably at half, the sophomore sat in between assistant coaches Mike Hopkins and Gerry McNamara while wearing a blue T-shirt and warmup pants with ice on his right foot/ankle.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBefore his injury, Lydon led the Orange with 12 points on 4-of-7 shooting. He hit both of his 3-pointers, both of his free throws and chipped in six rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal.The guards answered Jim Boeheim’s pleasGranted, it was against an inferior opponent, but Eastern Michigan came into the game averaging the second-most steals per game in the country. Rob Murphy’s 2-3 zone, the one he learned while an assistant under Boeheim from 2004-11, was no match for the Orange’s backcourt.The SU head coach has harped on the fact his team needs more from its guards, in whatever capacity that may be. On Monday night, they delivered. Andrew White, Tyus Battle, John Gillon and Frank Howard combined to score 56 points while shooting 17-of-33 from the field.Howard registered 11 assists and Gillon nine, while Battle seemed back to his normal self following a week of not practicing an being eased back into competition against the Hoyas. Howard shed his offensive demons to an extent, scoring 10 points on 3-of-5 shooting, snapping a dreadful 2-for-20 streak over the three games prior to Monday’s.White and Gillon continued their steady play of late, combining to score 28 points while hitting a total of seven 3-pointers.Tyler Roberson emerges from the doghouse, for nowWith Lydon sidelined the entirety of the second half, Roberson played over 20 minutes for the first time since Nov. 26 against South Carolina.He scored 10 points, almost equaling his total of 12 points from the last six games. Roberson also pulled down eight rebounds, holding down frontcourt duties with either Dajuan Coleman and Taurean Thompson in the second half.Roberson has been mainly a non-factor this season with the emergence of the freshman Thompson as Syracuse’s best low-post scorer. In the first half, the combination of Lydon and Thompson was lethal, as the pair connected on high-lows on multiple occasions to stretch Syracuse’s lead to enough where it didn’t need arguably its best player for the second stanza.And even if it was at the expense of an injury, Roberson got his chance, which he didn’t too all that badly with.

Local investigators are still pursuing the extradition of former Deputy Chief Executive Officer (DCEO) of the Guyana Power and Light Inc, Ash Deonarine, to answer two multimillion-dollar fraud charges.In August last year, Deonarine was sent on administrative leave after he allegedly transferred some .8 million to his personal account without the approval of the Board of Directors. He is also being accused of paying former board member Carvil Duncan, a sum of 8,000 that was not authorised.Following months of investigations, the two former GPL Executives were slapped with conspiracy and simple larceny charges last month. However, Deonarine had left the country since August 2015 and never returned, as such, he was charged in absentia.Wanted: Ash DeonarineAdditionally, when the matter was placed before the courts late last month, an arrest warrant was issued for the former GPL second in command. It is believed that Deonarine fled to Canada.In this regard, Crime Chief Wendell Blanhum told reporters on Wednesday that the Police Force is still working on the process to have the former GPL Executive extradited to Guyana to face criminal charges in relation to the alleged unauthorised withdrawal of $27 million from the utility company’s accounts as “back pay”.“Deonarine is still wanted by the Police… Our legal advisors are still in contact with the law enforcement officials overseas and we are trying to prepare extradition documents,” Blanhum stated.After coming into office, the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change Administration found that close to $142 million of the PetroCaribe Fund was plugged into the operations of the state-owned GPL. This was realised after Government said it had found an empty PetroCaribe Fund when it took office and later launched an investigation.Based on information gathered, Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson had explained that the power company has two DCEOs – one for operations and the other for administration. He said apparently, the operations DCEO was receiving a higher salary than the administration DCEO, and the operations DCEO had been making representations to the Board for there to be parity in the salaries of the two.This, the Minister pointed out, was reportedly disapproved by the previous Board. However, in June 2015, with the signature of Director Duncan, Deonarine made the payment to himself retroactive from January 2013 to June 2015.Patterson further stated that Board Members had made several representations to have Board fees increase from $5000 to $20,000. He noted while the Board had discussed the recommendation, no final decision was made in that regard. Nevertheless, Duncan later went ahead and approved payment to the tune of $948,000 for himself, representing “back pay” for the 48 months that he has been a Board member of GPL.The former GPL Board member was also charged for simple larceny and is currently out on bail as the trial continues.
