Research Notes

  • From Elias: Syracuse is first No. 1 team to win consecutive games by 2 points or fewer since '81-82 North Carolina (ACC Championship vs Virginia & NCAA Tournament Round of 32 vs James Madison).

  • From Elias: This is the 2nd time in the last 30 seasons that two teams started 25-0 or better in the same season. The other time it happened was in 2003-04, when St. Joseph's started 27-0 and Stanford started 26-0.

  • When Syracuse is trailing or tied in the final minute of the 2nd half and overtime this season, the Orange have outscored their opponents 17-0 (including 3-0 against NC State). They're shooting 4-for-5 in those situations (first miss was against NC State), while their opponents are shooting 0-for-4.

  • From Elias: Syracuse improves to 25-0, seven wins shy of the best start by any team in ACC history.

  • This was the 7th time this season that Syracuse has been tied or trailing with 5 minutes left in regulation, winning each. The Orange have outscored their opponents by 43 points the rest of the way in those games with their opponents shooting a combined 6-of-49 from the floor, including 1-of-19 from the 3-point line.
