Where in the entire globe would Syracuse be without David Gillon?

Gillon's buzzer-beating 3-pointer forced Syracuse previous No. 10 Fight it out, 78-75, at the Service provider Dome Wed evening. The win is big for the Orange's NCAA Competition desires and smashes their three-game dropping ability.

John Gillon just defeat Fight it out at the alarm sounds with a banked-in three. What a sport.

The Lemon are now (17-12, 8-7 ACC) and experience No. 7 Louisville on the way on Weekend.

Gillon, who used Syracuse following one season at Arkansas-Little Stone and three at Denver Condition, completed 26 factors against Fight it out.

Gillon is having an up-and-down season for Syracuse, but when the Lemon win, he's is usually a big purpose why.

Before Syracuse's three-game skid, the Lemon won five directly. Gillon was large down the expand to close a five-point win against Awaken Woodlands. He obtained 21 against then-No. 6 California Condition, such as reviewing Syracuse's last 13. Most especially, he obtained 43 factors in a come-from-behind, extra time win against NC Condition. Gillon's delayed 3-pointer sent the experience into OT.

If Syracuse wants to keep to force toward a Competition bid, it needs more evenings like Wed from Gillon.

For Fight it out, the reduction pictures a seven-game successful ability. Henry Kennard led the Red Demons with 23 factors, while Jayson Tatum had 19 factors and 13 gets back.

Duke moves to Las vegas on Weekend.
