In the Orange's second game in three days, No. 3 Syracuse came from behind to defeat Big East rival Cincinnati on Monday.

The Syracuse Orange took a bit of their own medicine Monday afternoon in yet another close one that was decided in the last minute of play.

No. 21/20 Cincinnati (16-4, 4-3 Big East) employed a zone defense of their own en route to a tension-filled afternoon that saw the No. 3/4 Orange (18-1, 6-0 Big East) down by two with a minute and a half to play. When the snow cleared, Syracuse scrapped away a 57-55 victory.

“I hate it when teams play zone [against us],” head coach Jim Boeheim said after the win.

“I thought this was our grittiest win of the year,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said. “Everybody just dug in defensively and we couldn’t get anything going offensively.”
