The SU women's basketball team almost let the game slip through its fingers, but strong performances by Brittney Sykes and Shakeya Leary helped the Orange win.

In the closing moments of the second half, Washington State erased the Syracuse women’s basketball team’s 11-point cushion and was in striking distance with only 42 seconds left on the clock.

But sophomore guard Brittney Sykes reeled in her first steal of the game and took it to the other end for a layup to push the Orange up four.
