Orange Draw First Juice--74-73 over Cincy.

Syracuse looked to have the game well in hand with about 12:30 to go in the 2nd half--leading 57-44. An 11-3 run by the Bearcats put them right back in the game, and they went on to take the lead with under 4:00 to go.

UC still held a lead when Jerry McNamara hit a 3 point shot just before time expired gave the game to the Orange.

The win helps the Orange in the hunt for an NCAA bid. Considered a bubble team, Syracuse needs to make a run in the Big East tournament to secure a bid. That run may be tough--next up is UConn.

The Bearcats were considered a pretty safe NCAA team coming in.

It's Gerry Mcnamara not Jerry.
