Research Notes

  • Boston College's 19 losses at the time of game are the most ever by a team who defeated the AP No. 1 team. The previous record was 18 by UCLA, who at 9-18 defeated No. 1 Arizona on March 13, 2003.

  • Entering play on Wednesday, Syracuse was undefeated and the near-unanimous No. 1 team in the country. After their loss to Boston College, the Orange now have the worst loss this season of any of Joe Lunardi's No. 1 seeds.

  • Tyler Ennis was clutch... until tonight. In 1-possession games in the final 5 minutes of the 2nd half and overtime, he had more turnovers (2) tonight than he had in all other games combined. He was 1-for-5 shooting with 0 assists and 2 turnovers, and even missed a free throw, after the 5-minute mark of the 2nd half.

  • UPDATES WITH LATE REVISION TO FG PCT IN FINAL BOX SCORE:Syracuse had its worst shooting night of the season in their upset loss to Boston College on Wednesday:

  • Syracuse entered Wednesday ranked No. 3 in BPI. Boston College entered ranked No. 159. In terms of BPI rank differential (156), it's currently the largest upset against a BPI top-25 team this season.

  • This is the 3rd time EVER that a team below .500 has defeated the AP No. 1 team on the road. It's the first time since Georgia Tech won at top-ranked Kentucky in 1955.

  • Boston College entered the game with a .240 win percentage. That's the worst percentage EVER by a team to defeat the AP No. 1 team in February or later.
