NOTES: For several players, Saturday's game was a high school reunion. Syracuse's Jerami Grant and Pittsburgh's James Robinson played together at DeMatha Catholic in Hyattsville, Md., while Syracuse's Tyler Ennis and Pittsburgh's Michael Young and Jamel Artis all played at St. Benedict's Prep in Newark, N.J. ... Syracuse leads the all-time series with Pittsburgh, 64-39. The Orange has won three of the last four meetings after the Panthers won five consecutive games against the Orange from 2007-11. That five-game win streak ranks as the all-time longest win streak for an opponent at the Carrier Dome. ... Pittsburgh has reached the NCAA Tournament 11 of the last 12 years, a feat surpassed only by Duke, Gonzaga, Kansas, Michigan State and Wisconsin, and matched by Texas. Despite Saturday's loss, the Panthers appear to be a lock for another tournament bid.
