Trevor Cooney scored a career-high 33 points and tied a school record with nine three-pointers in the win.

Every time Notre Dame looked like it was going upset No. 1 Syracuse, the unlikeliest of heroes swooped in to save the day.

Rather, he swished in.

Trevor Cooney, who averaged 13.2 points-per-game going into Monday’s game, shot 9-of-15 from behind the arc to lift the Orange (22-0, 9-0 ACC) past a scrappy Fighting Irish quad, 61-55. Cooney scored a career-high 33 points and tied a Syracuse record with nine three-pointers in the game, also a career best.
