Carrier Dome, Syracuse, New York
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Rick Jackson knew his last game in the Carrier Dome would be unforgettable before it even started. His teammates wore navy blue shirts in pregame warmups with his No. 00 on the back encircled by their numbers and names, and "thanks for the memories" printed across the front.Jackson didn't get his 18th double-double of the season Saturday, but he did OK with 14 points, seven rebounds and four blocks as No. 12 Syracuse overwhelmed DePaul 107-59, the most lopsided game in Big East history. Louisville beat DePaul by 45 points two years ago, a year after Connecticut humbled Cincinnati by the same margin.
