Ennis, Orange Too Tough For Miami

The Syracuse Orange were able to weather a strong surge by the Hurricanes and remain unbeaten, defeating Miami 64-52 at BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, FL on Satuday.

Freshman Tyler Ennis was again clutch in the closing minutes as it seemed Miami might knock the second-ranked Orange off their undefeated perch.

Trailing 47-46 with under seven minutes remaining, Ennis grabbed a defensive rebound and took the ball the length of the court for a running lay-in with a foul, putting Syracuse ahead 49-47.

After two free throws tied it for Miami, ‘Cuse went on a 15-3 run down the stretch that included another bucket for Ennis, and one of Trevor Cooney’s three 3-pointers on the day.

C.J. Fair lead the Orange (19-0, 6-0 ACC) with 15 points and seven rebounds, Ennis ended with 14 and four assists while Jerami Grant poured in 14 with eight boards.

Devon Reed made three of four 3-point attempts to pace the ‘Canes who got off to a slow start on the day.

Syracuse led 26-8 after twelve minutes of play when Miami (10-9, 2-5 ACC) responded with an 18-5 run to close out the half, including an 11-0 spurt.

Syracuse visits Wake Forest on Wednesday night at 9:00.
