Syracuse beats Pittsburgh 69-58 for its second series victory in 17 days

PITTSBURGH (AP) - JJ Starling scored 17 points, Judah Mintz had 14 points, nine rebounds and five assists and Syracuse beat Pittsburgh 69-58 on Tuesday night for its second series victory in 17 days.

It was Syracuse's first win in Pittsburgh since a 72-49 victory on Feb. 26, 2020 - snapping a three-game losing streak. The Orange won the first meeting this season - at home - on Dec. 30.

Syracuse had its 11-point halftime lead trimmed to 44-36 before scoring the next seven points to rebuild a double-digit advantage. Pitt missed seven straight shots during the Orange's run.

Freshman Jaland Lowe, averaging 5.4 points, scored eight straight Pitt points to get within 62-53 with 3:44 left. But the Panthers didn't make another field goal until Federiko Federiko completed a three-point play with 40 seconds remaining.
