Roundup: Syracuse snaps skid, beats Irish

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – C.J. Fair had 18 points and 10 rebounds, freshman Jerami Grant scored a season-high 14 points, and No. 9 Syracuse beat No. 25 Notre Dame, 63-47, on Monday night to snap a two-game losing streak that had dropped the Orange three spots in the rankings.

Syracuse (19-3 overall, 7-2 Big East) was coming off consecutive road losses against Villanova and Pittsburgh and has only three conference losses in its past 32 Big East games. The Orange have won a school-record 36 straight games at home, the longest active streak in Division I. Notre Dame (18-5, 6-4) had won three straight.

It was the first meeting between the teams since the Irish handed Syracuse its only conference loss last season, 67-58 at Purcell Pavilion in January 2012. The Orange, unbeaten at the time and ranked No. 1, were missing shot-blocking, 7-foot center Fab Melo in that game because of an academic issue, and Monday night senior James Southerland, the team’s most consistent outside threat and third-leading scorer, missed his sixth straight game because of an eligibility matter related to academics. Southerland had 15 points in the loss to the Irish last year.

No. 23 Pittsburgh 56, Seton Hall 46: At Pittsburgh, Lamar Patterson scored 12 points and Pittsburgh pulled away late from Seton Hall.

Freshman center Steven Adams added eight points, 15 rebounds and two blocks for the Panthers (19-5, 7-4 Big East).

Fuquan Edwin led the Pirates (13-10, 2-8) with 23 points

Wright State 62, Loyola 59: At Dayton, Ohio, Cole Darling scored a game-high 17 points and Wright State (15-8, 6-4 Horizon League) used a second-half rally to top Loyola.

Christian Thomas led the Ramblers (13-10, 3-7) with 13 points.
