Michael Gbinije had a team-high 20 points and scored the go-ahead basket for Syracuse against Gonzaga in a 63-60 win.

In a back-and-forth game between two evenly matched teams, the Orange outlasted No. 11 Gonzaga, 63-60, in the NCAA Midwest Regional round of 16 Friday night at the United Center in Chicago. Syracuse managed the clock well and won thanks to a 9-3 run in the final three minutes of the game. Graduate guard Michael Gbinije scored the basket which put Syracuse up for good; a layup after his own offensive-rebound to make the score 61-60 with 22 seconds to play.

SU gets revenge over conference foe Boston College in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament, 1-0

The last time No. 6 Syracuse lost a game was on October 30th in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. It was the regular season finale for the Orange against the Boston College Eagles. BC scored two first-half goals and Syracuse couldn’t overcome the deficit, falling 2-1. This time around things would be different.

After not scoring for nearly a month, the sophomore helped the Cardinals pull away in the second half.

Louisville head coach Rick Pitino said he had a conversation with reserve guard Anton Gill earlier this week and told the sophomore he was “mentally in a funk.” 

But instead of giving Pitino lip service, Gill responded with a promise that he would be ready to play. So when Pitino was forced to go to his bench in the second half of Friday’s East Regional at the Carrier Dome against North Carolina State, he chose Gill over Shaqquan Aaron at the three-spot. 

Then Gill delivered on his promise in the biggest way.
