    It's two days later than originally scheduled and comes amid less hoopla than first hoped for, but the "Battle on the Midway" men's college basketball game between No. 20 San Diego State and No. 9 Syracuse is finally set to be played Sunday. 

SAN DIEGO (AP) — C.J. Fair and Michael Carter-Williams each scored 17 points and No. 9 Syracuse blew past No. 20 San Diego State 62-49 on the flight deck of the decommissioned USS Midway on a sunny, windy Sunday afternoon.

The Orange (1-0) effectively put it away when Fair made a jumper to make it 17-4 with 11:30 to go in the first half. He had nine points at that point.

Syracuse was just too tall and bulky for the Aztecs (0-1), who couldn't crack the Orange's 2-3 zone.

Of the three games on ships this year, this was the only one that was completed. On Friday night, the Marquette-Ohio State game on the USS Yorktown in Charleston, S.C., was canceled and the Georgetown-Florida game on the USS Bataan in Jacksonville was called off at halftime, both because of condensation on the court.

This game was postponed from Friday night due to the threat of rain.
