Nick Johnson scored 24 points, Aaron Gordon had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and No. 1 Arizona wore down visiting Washington to pull away late for a 71-62 win in Tucson on Saturday.

But Arizona turned up the defensive pressure in the second half to stretch the lead in the final minutes. Syracuse 49, Miami 44 - C.J. Fair scored 15 points, including the go-ahead basket with 4 minutes, 16 seconds to go, and the No. 2 Orange (14-0)

NEW YORK - Sean Miller insisted he didn't take Drexel lightly. The Arizona coach said he expected the type of battle that the Dragons gave his No. 4- ranked Wildcats, who finally prevailed, 66-62, in an NIT Season Tip-Off semifinal Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. Miller said he spent nearly a week watching tape and scouting the Dragons "It's easy to say that Arizona overlooked Drexel, but that is the furthest thing from the truth," Miller said. As he watched more tape on Drexel, "it became apparent to me that we were in for one heck of a battle," Miller said.

DREXEL JUNIOR swingman Damion Lee, one of the best players in the Colonial Athletic Association, went down with a scary-looking right knee injury midway through the second half of Wednesday's NIT Season Tip-Off game against Arizona at Madison Square Garden. There is no official diagnosis yet, but Lee was declared out for today's 3:30 p.m. consolation game against Alabama. Lee was driving through the lane, jumped to shoot and came down awkwardly. He clearly was in serious pain before being helped off the court.

DREXEL COACH Bruiser Flint hopes his Dragons can improve upon their last respectable Madison Square Garden appearance. Drexel (3-1) faces unbeaten and No. 4-ranked Arizona (5-0) tonight at 7 o'clock in a NIT Season Tip-Off semifinal. In 2005, Drexel gave then-No. 1 Duke all it could handle before losing by 10 points. Then the Dragons lost by just one point to UCLA, prompting ESPN analyst Dick Vitale to exclaim, "If Drexel is the [preseason] No. 7 team in the CAA, that must be a heckuva league.
