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.

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)

Malvern Prep graduate Ryan Nassib threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Alec Lemon with 20 seconds to go, capping a 21-point fourth quarter as Syracuse spoiled Missouri's home finale with a 31-27 win Saturday night. Lemon had 12 receptions for 244 yards and two scores, including a 13-yard catch that tied it at 17 earlier in the fourth. After trailing by 17-3 early, the Orange (6-5) followed up on a 45-26 upset of previously unbeaten Louisville a week earlier and became bowl-eligible for the second time in three seasons.

Maryland's players met their goalie and walked slowly off the field at halftime of their NCAA women's lacrosse semifinal. Syracuse's players ran into the tunnel at Talen Energy Stadium. With Maryland leading by seven goals at the break, it made sense. The Orange had a lot to figure out. Their offense had scored only three goals and the Terrapins converted on all but one of their shots. "I think our girls really came out on fire," Maryland head coach Cathy Reese said. The top-seeded Terrapins (22-0)

Allie Murray thought she was never going to play lacrosse again. She had already graduated from Notre Dame in three years and spent the following year working with kids at a community center in South Bend, Ind. As she searched for graduate schools, her mother, Ellen, told her to have low expectations because she only had one year of eligibility. The goalie began preparing as if her playing days were behind her. Her Notre Dame career included 15 starts, a 9.87 goals-allowed average and 104 saves.

Each of the last three seasons has ended the same way for Syracuse: a loss to Maryland on Memorial Day weekend. The two teams will meet again on Friday in the NCAA Division I women's lacrosse tournament semifinals, and the stage provides another chance for the Terrapins to end the Orange's season or for Syracuse to finally break through. Top seed Maryland (21-0, 5-0 Big Ten) enters undefeated and in search of its third consecutive national title. Four seed Syracuse (19-5, 5-2 Atlantic Coast)

HOUSTON - It's a precarious spot for North Carolina, Saturday's easy favorite in the second NCAA semifinal, the reigning Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season and tournament champion in the Final Four against a team that was ninth seed in the same ACC tournament. Yet in Syracuse there's still a team to be feared, even by the Tar Heels, preseason No. 1 nationally and back at the top coming into NRG Stadium. This Orange group has picked up Jim Boeheim's zone defense and has the kind of parts that make it work.

The 40th season in the life of Jim Boeheim as Syracuse's head basketball coach resumes Saturday night, and what better way for him to return from a nine-game suspension than to run into No. 6 North Carolina before an expected crowd of more than 25,000 at the Carrier Dome? The NCAA imposed the suspension on Boeheim last March for rules violations, finding that the university failed to control its athletic department and was guilty of impermissible benefits, academic misconduct and errors in drug policy.

After a brief flirtation with Penn's football program, Lake Zurich (Ill.) linebacker Colton Moskal committed to Syracuse after his junior year in high school. Penn wanted to add the 6-foot, 225-pound inside linebacker - as did coaching staffs at Yale, Minnesota, Purdue and a number of other schools - but once Moskal committed to Syracuse, the Quakers moved on. But Moskal, who never rose above the scout team as a freshman in 2014, realized that climbing the depth chart at Syracuse would be difficult.

Taylor Cummings postgame cool down was repeatedly interrupted. Multiple teammates patted her back and offered high-fives as she jogged from sideline to sideline. When she walked toward the team's stretching circle she was blocked by a group of Maryland players who smothered her into a group hug. They were all thanking Cummings for her six points and five draw controls in the Terps' 10-8 semifinal win over Syracuse at PPL Park on Friday. The win puts top-ranked Maryland (20-1, 5-0 Big Ten)

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - The Penn women's lacrosse team formed a circle in front of its bench and each player put an arm around her closest teammate. Some players cried. Others lightly laughed. After chasing Syracuse (15-7, 3-4 Atlantic Coast) around a rain-soaked field for 60 minutes, the Quakers (14-6, 6-1 Ivy League) saw their season end in a 13-10 loss to the Orange at SU Soccer Stadium on Sunday afternoon. It's the second straight year that Penn's NCAA tournament run ended in the second round.

The Syracuse men's lacrosse team made the most of its opportunities Sunday. The Orange erased an early Duke lead and held on to secure their first Atlantic Coast Conference tournament title with a 15-14 victory at PPL Park. Syracuse (11-2) reached the championship Friday with a 9-8 victory over North Carolina. The Orange scored on all but one of their four man-up situations Sunday, all of them coming after they had dug themselves a 5-1 hole against the Blue Devils. By contrast, Duke, a much younger and less-experienced team, was unable to capitalize on any of its four extra-body possessions.
