Digna Strautmane added 16 points and nine rebounds for the Orange (23-7, 12-5 Atlantic Coast Conference), who led by one at halftime and eight after three quarters.
Mangakahia, who scored 44 points on 16-for-20 shooting in a 94-88 win over No. 22 Florida State on Thursday, was just 8 of 23 from the field but surpassed 1,000 points in just her 60th game at Syracuse. She is the fastest to reach that milestone in school history.

Syracuse shot 54 percent in the second half and a 37 percent first half despite going 9 of 18 from distance for the game.
