BOSTON - Just off the TD Garden court, Scoop Jardine put his head against his father, both rubbing the back of the other's head, smiling and loving the moment. "I really want to cry, but I'm going to hold it in," the Syracuse point guard told his father, Tony. Jardine had just experienced what had to be the biggest victory of his collegiate career, and by a razor's edge avoided it being the last game of his career. The Orange are into the NCAA Elite Eight for the first time in nine years because they forced a tough last shot out of a hot team, getting past Wisconsin, 64-63, in a thriller that saw the losers make 14 three-pointers, including six in a row in the second half.

TEMPLE COACH Fran Dunphy was concerned with his team's play when it was winning eight of nine. Then, the Owls played without any offensive rhythm again and were upset at home last Wednesday against Canisius. This did not appear to be good preparation for Saturday's game against No. 3 Syracuse at Madison Square Garden. It looked even worse when the Owls trailed by 10 points midway thought the first half. Then, almost without warning, Temple started to play like Dunphy's good teams always play - smart, sharp, with purpose.

PITTSBURGH - Syracuse will have to chase a national championship without starting center Fab Melo, the Big East defensive player of year, who has been declared ineligible for the NCAA tournament. Syracuse (31-2) opens play on Thursday against No. 16 seed North Carolina-Asheville. The university announced Tuesday that the 7-foot Brazilian, who did not travel with the team to Pittsburgh for the second- and third-round games, won't take part in the tournament due to an eligibility issue.

NEW YORK - Before winning a conference title, notching a 20-win season, and advancing to the NCAA tournament, the first annual task for Temple is beating a top 10 opponent. Once again, the Owls accomplished that feat. Temple upset third-ranked Syracuse, 83-79, Saturday in the Gotham Classic at Madison Square Garden. It is the fifth consecutive season the Owls (9-2) have knocked off a top 10 opponent. And this upset came three days after an embarrassing home loss to Canisius.

After saying goodbye to 12 seniors in their final home game, Temple said farewell to its last remaining hope to earn a bowl bid. The Owls needed to play close-to-perfect defense against Syracuse on Friday at Lincoln Financial Field, and they weren't close. The result was a 38-20 defeat that destroyed any chance of extending the season. Temple ended its first season back in the Big East with a 4-7 record, 2-5 in the conference. The Orange (7-5, 5-2) rushed for 260 yards, and the pride of Malvern Prep, Ryan Nassib, kept making key completions.

The routine is getting old for Villanova students: Count down the final seconds and storm the court at the Wells Fargo Center after watching their Wildcats knock off another opponent ranked in the top five. The Wildcats pulled off the unlikely Saturday, tying the game in regulation on Ryan Arcidiacono's three-point basket and riding James Bell's eight points in overtime to come away with a stunning 75-71 upset of third-ranked Syracuse before a frenzied crowd of 18,273. The victory marked the second time in five days that Villanova (13-7, 4-3 Big East)

Having received limited playing time in two years at Syracuse, former Lower Merion High basketball standout B.J. Johnson said Thursday he will transfer. "He wants a chance to go somewhere where he can maximize his playing potential, get 25 minutes or more a game," said his father, Bobby Johnson. "And with the year off, he'll have time to work on his body and put on a few pounds. " Johnson made the announcement the same day that Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said in an hour-long news conference that he and the university will appeal punishments for academic and benefits violations.

VILLANOVA WAS unbeaten, playing beautifully and mostly crushing everybody. Syracuse was not playing well at all and came to the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday as the worst three-point shooting team in the country. This was not that 'Cuse team and, for the longest time, it was not that 'Nova team, either. The 'Cuse led by 15 with 90 seconds to go in the first half and five with 12 seconds left in regulation. Villanova (11-0) is still unbeaten, one of nine remaining. Syracuse (6-4)

A crowd of 18,369 that provided an electric atmosphere Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center had to think in the closing moments of regulation that Syracuse was going to turn out the lights on seventh-ranked Villanova's undefeated season. But the Wildcats, who never led and trailed for all but 24 seconds in regulation, dug deep to score five consecutive points to send the game into overtime and then controlled the extra period with defense and free throws to pull out an 82-77 win over the Orange.

Were Villanova fans going to storm the court just for forcing overtime? It was that kind of Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center. The home team trailed for all but 24 seconds of regulation. The visiting team was Syracuse. "I think sometimes we don't thank our rivals enough," Villanova coach Jay Wright said later. "When Syracuse comes in here, this place is rocking. I'll tell you, I don't like it when they have a lead at the end and this place is chanting, 'Let's go Orange.' But I know our people get fired up when they come in here.

Rakeem Christmas can't help but laugh when he hears himself described as a garbage man. A former McDonald's all-American from the Academy of the New Church, the 6-foot-9 Philadelphia native has spent most of his career at Syracuse around the basket making athletic putbacks and blocking shots. His lagging offensive game - coupled with the fact that Syracuse (6-3) is usually loaded with talent - has never caught up with the once-lofty expectations. But this season, his final with the Orange, things seem to be coming together.

Michael Carter-Williams talked Monday about going back to Syracuse, seeing all his old fans.

THIS MIGHT not come as a real surprise, but recent history has shown the 76ers are not very good at giving information on players' injuries - such as those to Andrew Bynum and Nerlens Noel. Now there appears to be a little confusion over the shoulder surgery that has sidelined NBA Rookie of the Year Michael Carter-Williams. Just after MCW received his award in May, the team said that he had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder and that the recovery period would be 2 to 4 months.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Villanova had a window of opportunity to defeat a Football Bowl Subdivision opponent Friday night, but its chance sailed wide. After senior Chris Gough missed a 25-yard field goal that would have won the game at the end of regulation, Syracuse (1-0) inched by Villanova (0-1), 27-26, in double overtime in the Carrier Dome. "I felt like we could have won the game tonight," Wildcats coach Andy Talley said. "We had it all timed out at the end. You line up and kick the field goal and you win. " Gough made a field goal at the end of the Wildcats' first overtime drive, but Syracuse tied the score on its possession before taking the lead on a 1-yard touchdown pass by punter Riley Dixon.

A year ago, Villanova opened its football season by giving host Boston College a major scare. The Wildcats led, 14-7, at halftime before losing, 24-14. Now, Villanova opens against another Atlantic Coast Conference Football Bowl Subdivision team, with Friday night's game at the Carrier Dome against Syracuse. Coach Andy Talley is hoping his underdog Wildcats will be competitive, but he is also looking to keep his players off the trainer's table against a much deeper Syracuse team.
