The flickering light that is the NCAA tournament hopes of the Orange is not out just yet.

Syracuse (19-12, 8-10) held on to defeat #18 Clemson (22-8, 11-7) by a final score of 55-52. In front of the largest crowd in college basketball this season (28,670), the Cardiac 'Cuse nabbed its first win over a ranked team in dramatic fashion.

Points were not at a premium in Syracuse's (18-12, 7-10) 85-70 road loss to Boston College (17-13, 7-10). The Orange allowed the second most points it has all season, thanks in large part to a great night shooting three-pointers from the Eagles. 

It was yet another ineffective night of scoring for Jim Boeheim's group. The team shot just 38 percent from the floor. On the other hand, BC hit on a whopping 52 percent of its long range attempts to keep the Orange at an arm's length the whole contest.

Syracuse Travels to Boston for ACC Matchup

Following a woeful offensive performance in Durham, Syracuse (18-11, 7-9) heads to Boston College (16-13, 6-10) in a game that will determine seeding in the ACC tournament. A loss would drop the Orange firmly behind Notre Dame and bring them level in conference play with the Eagles.

While Syracuse is concerned with its NCAA Tournament prospects, it cannot afford to look past Boston College. The Orange coasted to an 81-63 victory in the Carrier Dome earlier this season, but the last time the two faced off in Boston, the Eagles dropped 96 points en route to a 15-point victory.

Just three days after falling to No. 10 UNC in the Carrier Dome, Syracuse (18-11, 7-9) lost their second in a row in a vicious back-to-back. The No. 5 Duke Blue Devils (24-5, 12-4) took care of the Orange 60-44 in Cameron Indoor Stadium on Saturday for their fifth straight win.

The No. 16 ranked Syracuse Orange (2-1, 0-0) played their third game of the season today, and second against a ranked opponent. Winning 11-10, Syracuse handed the No. 9 ranked Army Black Knights (1-1, 0-0) their first loss of the season in a triple overtime come-from-behind dramatic fashion. In a long and grueling matchup, the Orange were able to come out on top in this thriller of a victory.

After coming off a disappointing 15-3 loss to No. 3 Albany the week before, Syracuse’s huge win today showed that they can compete with the other top ranked teams in the nation.

Syracuse (18-10, 7-8) travels to Durham to take on #5 Duke (23-5, 11-4) in Cameron Indoor Stadium. The Orange aims to win its third in-a-row over the Blue Devils.

SU comes off a 78-74 loss to the University of North Carolina. Things were tied up at 74 with only three minutes left; but the ’Cuse went 0-7 from the field to close things out, and the Tar Heels wound up on top.

Orange Falls Late to Tar Heels

It was a packed Loud House in Central New York, but Syracuse (18-10, 7-8) fell 78-74 to North Carolina (22-7, 11-5) in a back and forth affair. Frustrating does not do the result justice.

Frank Howard, Tyus Battle and Oshae Brissett scored 66 of the Orange's 74 points. The story tonight is the same as it has been all season, 'Cuse has only three players making significant offensive contributions. Despite all the scoring, Syracuse struggled to defend inside for the majority of the game.

A win in Miami may have saved SU's (18-9, 7-7)  season, but the road ahead doesn't get any easier. The team's next roadblock is #10 North Carolina (21-7, 10-5). 

The Tar Heels are a perennial tournament team looking to make their third straight NCAA finals. This year the Tar Heels don't boast their usual NBA talent, but they still rank among the top of the NCAA in a couple of important team statistics.

Syracuse Falls Hard against Albany

It was not a game to remember for fans of the Orange. Fourth-ranked Albany (1-0, 0-0) battered seventh-ranked Syracuse (1-1, 0-0) in the Carrier Dome on Saturday 15-3, marking its worst offensive performance since 1991.

A week ago, 'Cuse dominated the faceoff circle thanks in large part to Danny Varello and stellar play from the wings during the Orange's rout of Binghamton. Against the Danes, Syracuse went 5 of 22 at midfield. As a result, Albany controlled the game, never giving Syracuse a chance to catch up.
