It has been a scary few games for the Syracuse Orange lately, but they once again survive a scary situation and come away with a win, and earn the Big East title in the process.

Syracuse's only loss of the season came back in January to Notre Dame.  Since then they have won nine straight games, including last night against UConn 71-69. The Orange were led by Kris Joseph, who had 21 points.  Fab Melo would add 11 points and 9 rebounds, while Scoop Jardine tallied just 7 on the night.

UConn was lead by Andre Drummond and Jeremy Lamb who had 17 and 19 points, respectively.  Drummond also had 14 rebounds.  Unfortunately The Huskies got no production out of their bench.
