C .J. FAIR AND Tyler Ennis both scored 21 points, and No. 2 Syracuse pulled out a 68-63 victory over St. John's yesterday at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Fair hit three big shots from the same spot - about 15 feet from the basket on the right baseline. The smooth lefthanded shooter tied the game from there at 58 with 6:51 to go, then he made two more in the final 3 minutes as the Orange (10-0) were able to open a lead as big as seven points.
"I'm very comfortable on the baseline," Fair said. "I guess that's what you say is my sweet spot."
D'Angelo Harrison led St. John's (6-3) with 21 points.
* At Missouri, Jabari Brown scored 15 points while Jordan Clarkson and Earnest Ross both added 12 to help the No. 24 Tigers (10-0) defeat Western Michigan (5-4), 66-60.
