Dontahe Jordan had 14 points, Lorenzo Christmas 13 and Wes Lyons 12 to lead Bloomsburg.
Orange coach Jim Boeheim said he planned to play nine players all season, and he didn't waver in this one as nine players logged double-digit minutes.
Bloomsburg, whose tallest starter was 6-foot-6, had trouble making any kind of penetration against the bigger Orange. Syracuse forced 16 turnovers in the opening half, committed only five and took 13 more shots, hitting 25 of 37 (67.6 percent).
Syracuse, which beat Pace 99-63 on Thursday night, opens its season Friday at San Diego State and returns home to face Wagner nine days later.
