NCAABB: Syracuse Orange vs. Connecticut Huskies

Syracuse found another way to win Saturday night, and in the process secured the Big East regular-season championship.

Fab Melo’s follow-up dunk with 31 seconds left lifted the second-ranked Orange to a 71-69 win over Connecticut. C.J. Fair blocked a shot by Roscoe Smith just before the buzzer to preserve the victory for Syracuse, which has won nine in a row since its only loss of the season Jan. 21 at Notre Dame.
Kris Joseph had 21 points to lead the Orange (29-1, 16-1 Big East).
Jeremy Lamb had 19 points, and Andre Drummond added 17 points and 14 rebounds for UConn (17-11, 7-9), which overcame a 17-point second-half deficit to tie the game with 47 seconds to go.
