Syracuse knocks off No. 18 Virginia in overtime

No. 18 UVa loses 63-55 in OT against Syracuse

Girard II had a game-high 19 points and Hughes was right behind him with 18. The Orange average roughly 74 points per game but have erupted for 97 points against a very good defensive Georgia Tech team on the road and 87 against Notre Dame at home. Buddy Boeheim added 10 points and four caroms.

The Syracuse Orange basketball team travels to Charlottesville Saturday for a rematch with the Virginia Cavaliers. The teams traded points down the stretch to go to overtime.

For the 'Hoos in addition to Huff, Clark finished with 13 points, 6 rebounds and 9 assists, while Diakite contributed 13 points and 8 boards. Clark, Diakite and Huff each recorded six points for the Cavaliers, but the team shot a disappointing 30.8 percent from the field and was just 2-for-11 from behind the arc while allowing nine turnovers in the first half alone. 8 percent for the game, scored 20 points in OT after producing 19 in the second half. The Orange found themselves in a unsafe position as Dolezaj and Sidibe faced foul trouble with four each, allowing Virginia to turn on the jets and jump on an 8-0 run to go ahead 31-30 close to the 14-minute mark.

Virginia shutdown Syracuse's offense to open the regular season back in November, holding the Orange to just 34 points. Hughes missed again, but the Orange held on as Virginia failed to score in the final seconds.

Virginia continued to apply pressure as Huff and Clark scored points inside the paint, extending the unanswered run to 12 points. In the thick of the ACC conference schedule, Syracuse knows wins will not be easy to come by. Meanwhile, the teams continued to trade points as Hughes sunk his third three-pointer and Huff slammed yet another impressive dunk. If they're going to win then it's a given that they need Hughes and Boeheim to score but they need support from starters and the bench.

Throughout overtime, both sides found greater success in shooting.

"There are certain things you can't control and that is the message", Coach Tony Bennett said.

Mustering its fewest points in Boeheim's 44-year tenure, Syracuse shot just 23.6 percent from the field and 17.2 percent (5 of 29) from 3-point range. It was tied 11-11 when Syracuse hit back-to-back three-pointers and eventually took a 24-20 lead into the half.

Virginia, which lost for the second straight game, fell to 11-4 for the year and 3-2 in the league. "Learn from it, try to control what you can control and don't hang your head but don't think this is a fluke".

The game will be shown nationally on ESPN, Saturday, January 11th at 4:00 p.m. ET and can also be seen on the WatchESPN app, according to ESPN.com. If Saturday can be one of those nights when they can get into a rhythm for a large period of the game then there is upset potential.
