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.

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.

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.

The victory marked the second time in five days that Villanova (13-7, 4-3 Big East)

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.

Jerami Grant's athleticism and bloodlines were enough to ensure that he would become a mid-first-round pick in the NBA draft. That was the thought. The 20-year-old out of Syracuse slipped to the 76ers with the 39th overall pick Thursday night. "With Jerami, we were shocked. I was shocked," said Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie, whose team opens summer-league training camp on Monday. "Even Jerami, I think, was shocked. He anticipated that he would go considerably higher. " The Sixers believe they got a steal in the 6-foot-8, 214-pounder, who played power forward during his two seasons at Syracuse.

John Desko took the podium first on Sunday afternoon after his Syracuse men's lacrosse team's 15-14 loss to Notre Dame in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game at PPL Park. The coach looked down at his stat sheet and noticed something missing next to Notre Dame goalie Conor Kelly's name. "I don't see a save for him in the fourth quarter here," Desko said. "But he made a pretty big one. " The shot was officially recorded as wide, but there was no doubt that Kelly, who starred at the Haverford School, robbed Syracuse's Kevin Rice to save Notre Dame's victory with two seconds remaining in regulation.

This time last year, the teams playing for the 2014 Atlantic Coast Conference men's lacrosse tournament championship weren't even in the ACC. Conference newcomers Notre Dame (7-5) and Syracuse (10-3) survived semifinal matchups decided in the final seconds Friday night at PPL Park in Chester and will play for the ACC title at 1 p.m. Sunday.

Rodney Hood scored 13 points and drew the game-changing charging call that helped No. 5 Duke beat top-ranked Syracuse, 66-60, Saturday night in Durham, N.C. Jabari Parker had 19 points and 10 boards for the Blue Devils (22-6, 11-4 ACC). Jerami Grant scored 17 for the Orange (25-2, 12-2), who have lost two straight.

In this space last week, we thought Syracuse would suffer its first loss of 2013-14 before Wichita State did because of its difficult road schedule. But never in our wildest dreams did we see downtrodden Boston College, a team that had defeated one Division I squad (Virginia Tech) since Nov. 26, going into the Carrier Dome and recording the shocker of the season. Now the schedule really gets tough for Syracuse, which must play its next three at Duke, at Maryland, and at Virginia. "We can't think about" the loss, Orange coach Jim Boeheim said.

SHELICE HIGHSMITH always wanted something better for her son, Zaire Franklin. So, when another parent passed along an application to La Salle College High School when Zaire was a freshman at Franklin Learning Center, a seed was planted. "At first I thought she was crazy," Franklin joked in a phone interview. "I was like, 'I can't go to college - I'm only in ninth grade!' I didn't know La Salle was even a high school. "She made me apply, but I didn't want to go because it was an all-boys school and I wanted no parts of that.
