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.

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.
