Dome Drama: Orange squeeze by Duke in OT

Syracuse, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The Carrier Dome's most anticipated game of the season more than lived up to its advance billing. It was certainly one C.J. Fair, Jerami Grant and the Syracuse Orange won't easily forget.

With Fair pouring in a career-high 28 points and Grant tallying a personal- best 24, the second-ranked Orange won a school-record 21st straight game to begin a season by outlasting No. 17 Duke in overtime, 91-89, in a classic played in front of the largest on-campus crowd in NCAA basketball history.

Fair went 12-of-20 from the field and Grant hit 7-of-11 shots while adding 10 rebounds as Syracuse (21-0, 8-0 ACC) kept its unblemished record intact despite a determined effort from a Duke squad that had its two main post players, Jabari Parker and Amile Jefferson, foul out in the final two minutes of regulation.

The Blue Devils survived the ejections by knocking down 15-of-36 attempts from 3-point range, none bigger than Rasheed Sulaimon's 22-footer at the buzzer that forced extra time.

Sulaimon finished 4-of-7 from beyond the arc in a 16-point effort, while Parker had 15 points and nine rebounds prior to exiting. Jefferson totaled 14 points and seven boards for Duke (17-5, 6-3), which entered the marquee matchup having won five straight.
