NEXT LEVEL: Cincinnati's offensive struggles against Syracuse's zone should not be a surprise. The Bearcats came into the game as the worst team in the Big East against zone defenses, shooting 33 percent and turning the ball over once every 7 plays. Those numbers were nearly identical today against Syracuse.
Michael Carter-Williams has been terrific in the 2nd half each of his last 2 games after struggling in the 1st half. He scored 11 of Syracuse's final 13 points against Louisville and 14 second-half points against Cincinnati.
After extending its lead to 54-48 with 3:47 left, Cincinnati failed to make another field goal as Syracuse outscored the Bearcats 9-1 to win the game.
Syracuse has won 35 straight games at the Carrier Dome, the longest active home winning streak in Division I.
Kentucky will travel to West Virginia and Kansas will host Texas A&M in the Big 12/SEC Challenge.
