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.

The junior led the No. 7 Orange (15-1, 3-0 Big East) with 23 points and 11 rebounds. He was 9-for-10 from the line and also added four blocks.
