Box score

The Orange’s win ended Florida State’s home win streak in ACC play at 25 games, just one shy of Duke’s 26-game record streak.

Florida State’s last ACC loss at home was on Jan. 12, 2019, against then-No. 1 ranked Duke.

Syracuse trailed by 11 points early in the second half but went on a 16-2 run to grab the lead and then held on in the frenzied final minutes for the victory.

Cole Swider converted both ends of a one-and-one free throw opportunity with 10 seconds left to give Syracuse a 63-60 lead.

The Orange survived Florida State’s final possession that included two missed 3-pointers.

Syracuse improved to 5-3 overall and 1-0 in the ACC.
