In college basketball, it was another close one for the Orange. Syracuse lost its No. 1 ranking in the latest Associated Press men's basketball poll following back-to-back losses to Boston College and Duke last week. The Orange barely ended that skid by earning an ACC road win on Monday.
Fourth-ranked Syracuse blew most of a 12-point lead in the last eight minutes and used one final defensive stop to squeeze past Maryland 57-55.
Elsewhere, it was No. 5 Kansas over Oklahoma 83-75.
In women’s hoops, No. 6 Baylor beat Oklahoma 96-89.
