No. 4 Syracuse beats Maryland to end skid

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — No. 4 Syracuse blew most of a 12-point lead in the last 8 minutes and used one final defensive stop to squeeze past Maryland 57-55 on Monday night and end a two-game losing streak.

It was another close call for the Orange (26-2, 13-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), whose previous four games were decided by a total of 12 points, including losses to Boston College and Maryland. Syracuse led 49-37 with 7:54 left but allowed Maryland to close to 56-55 with 47 seconds remaining.

After C.J. Fair missed a jumper for the Orange, Baye Moussa Keita blocked a driving layup by Nick Faust to keep Syracuse in front. Trevor Cooney was fouled and made one of two free throws with 4 seconds to go before Maryland's Seth Allen's game-ending jumper bounded off the back of the rim.

Tyler Ennis scored 20 point and Fair had 17 to help Orange coach Jim Boeheim secure his 946th career victory.

Allen scored 22 points for the Terps (15-13, 7-8).
