SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - C.J. Fair tipped in the go-ahead basket with 19.4 seconds left and No. 3 Syracuse rallied past No. 21 Cincinnati 57-55 on Monday.
Trailing by seven points with just over 5 minutes left, Syracuse tied it at 55 on Michael Carter-Williams' 3-pointer with 80 seconds left.

Syracuse is 28-1 in regular-season play in the Big East the past two years, the loss at Notre Dame one year ago Monday.
Sean Kilpatrick had 21 points for the Bearcats (16-4, 4-3), who had won three straight.
