No. 1 Syracuse beats Notre Dame 61-55

(Continued)

Notre Dame refused to wilt, pulling back to 54-49 on Connaughton’s three-point play at 2:52.

“That’s who this group is,” Brey said. “We haven’t been able to get over the hump and win enough. We’ve been down on the road just about every time, and we come back and give ourselves a chance. I love that about us. If we keep doing that enough, I think we’ll get a couple of them.”

Grant’s layup off a feed from Ennis and two free throws by Ennis boosted the lead back to eight, and the Orange made it interesting when Ennis and Fair each missed the front end of 1-and-1s in the final minute.

Atkins missed a floater and Connaughton was off on a 3-point attack in the final seconds.

“I had a look and missed, which would have been a really big shot for us,” Atkins said. “That was a huge play. But they played great. They made plays when they were needed.”
