SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Olivier Hanlan and Patrick Heckmann hit 3-pointers in overtime, Lonnie Jackson made four straight free throws in the final 26.2 seconds, and lowly Boston College stunned top-ranked Syracuse 62-59 on Wednesday night, ending the Oranges unbeaten season. "It was an emotional game for us," BC coach Steve Donahue said after his first Carrier Dome win in eight tries against the Orange. "Its been incredible for these guys to persevere. Weve played well in a lot of games." The Eagles came to town with heavy hearts and a good dose of determination. Longtime basketball media contact and sports information assistant Dick Kelley died last week after a two-year battle with ALS. His funeral was Tuesday and the Eagles, who often visited his apartment, were wearing "DK" patches on their uniforms. "The patch on our chests, toward the end of the game it was like, We cant be denied. DK is looking down on us. Hes got us," said Ryan Anderson. "Its real emotional. Its really going to set in in a couple of hours." Boston College (7-19, 3-10 Atlantic Coast Conference), which had lost five straight, rallied from a 13-point second-half deficit to pull off the improbable upset. Syracuse (25-1, 12-1) travels to No. 5 Duke on Saturday night for a rematch of their overtime instant classic on Feb. 1. The loss leaves No. 3 Wichita State (28-0), which beat Loyola of Chicago 88-74 on Wednesday night, as the lone unbeaten in Division I. The Eagles, whose only conference wins this season were over Virginia Tech, beat a No. 1-ranked team for the third time and first since knocking off then-No. 1 North Carolina in 2009. Syracuse, which had won its last two games by a combined three points, shot a season-low 32.2 per cent from the field including going 2 of 12 from 3-point range, its sputtering offence unable to pull off another miracle finish. "When you get in enough of these games, theres going to be one youre not going to make a play. Thats what happens," Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said. "At the end of games, you get into enough of these games, youre not going to win. "Im really happy that weve won 25 games," Boeheim said. "We cant think about that. Weve got to think about what we have to going forward. Weve really got to get better, and I think we will. Its been an unbelievable run, Ive never seen anything like it before. Its remarkable what theyve done." Tied at 50 after two halves played at Boston Colleges deliberate pace, Hanlan and Heckmann hit from long range to give BC a 56-52 lead with 2:56 left, but Tyler Ennis driving layup knotted the score at 56 with 2:09 to play. A free throw by Ennis, from Brampton, Ont., gave the Orange a one-point lead, but Heckmanns backdoor layup put the Eagles back in front with 43.5 seconds left. After a timeout, Ennis threw a pass toward C.J. Fair in the right corner that sailed out of bounds. After the officials initially ruled it was Syracuses ball a video review with 32.5 seconds left re-affirmed the call. It didnt matter when Fair missed a drive and Jackson sealed the victory with his clutch free throws. Hanlan finished with 20 points and Jackson had 10. Anderson had nine points and 14 rebounds, but the Eagles won it by going 11 of 22 from behind the arc. They committed 15 turnovers, three after halftime. Fair finished with 20 points on 7-of-23 shooting and had 11 rebounds. Ennis had 14 points and six assists and Jerami Grant finished with 11 points. Syracuse won 58-56 at Pittsburgh a week ago and 56-55 over North Carolina State in the Carrier Dome on Saturday night -- as the Orange had walked a tightrope much of the season. Grants spinning layup on a drive through the lane gave Syracuse a 50-48 lead with 77 seconds left in regulation, but Hanlan tied it with a layup 30 seconds later. After a timeout, Ennis missed a layup attempt but snared his own rebound and Boeheim called a timeout with 20 seconds left to set up a final shot. But Rakeem Christmas missed a hook in the lane just before the buzzer to force overtime. BC was called for two shot-clock violations in the final 5 minutes, squandering a chance to win it in regulation. BC figured to attack the Syracuse zone inside-out with Jackson leading the ACC in shooting at 50 per cent (34 of 68) from behind the arc and Joe Rahon and Hanlan each with 21 3-pointers. Eddie Odio averaging 42.4 per cent from long range, also started. BC trailed by eight points at halftime and by as many 13 in the second half before its outside game came alive. Hanlan hit three from behind the arc and Rahon had two in a 7-minute span to key a 21-8 spurt, and Andersons layup tied it at 41-all with 8:15 left. A 3 by Rahon from the left corner made it 46-42 with 6:09 to go. Syracuse tied it at 46 on Ennis driving layup with 5:09 left, but he committed a turnover on the ensuing possession and Heckmanns layup put BC back in front 48-46 at 3:30. The Orange tied it at 48 on a free throw by Christmas with 2:23 to play. Syracuse started badly, missing its first seven shots and falling behind 7-2 as Jackson drained two 3s in the first 5 minutes. Fair notched the Oranges first basket on a reverse layup at 14:19. Fair, Syracuses leading scorer, had eight of the Oranges first 12 points, but half those points were on free throws as he missed eight of his first 10 shots. Syracuse shot 34.5 per cent (10 of 29) and missed all six attempts from long range in the first half. Grants three-point play gave Syracuse a 25-17 lead at halftime as the Orange held Boston Colleges top scorers in check. Hanlan was 1 of 5 from the field and Anderson 1 of 4. The Orange boosted the lead to 33-20 on Ennis 3 from the wing with 17:25 left. Syracuse won at Boston College a little more than a month ago. The Orange trailed 51-46 with just over 10 minutes to play, then took advantage of their size inside during a 16-1 run over a span of less than 4 minutes and won 69-59.

Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca. Mr. Fraser, I think everyone would like to hear your opinion on what sort of suspension Zac Rinaldo should get. His comment after the game of I changed the whole game, man. Who knows what the game would have been like if I didnt do what I did? not only suggests that he doesnt have any remorse for his actions, but perhaps that hes proud of them. Combining that statement with his history and a reasonable person could believe that he intended to cause injury. Certainly his history is very similar to that of Matt Cooke circa 2011, and this hit looks just as dangerous (if not more so) than the one that got Cooke a season-ending suspension then. Would you expect a similar punishment at this point? Joseph in Colorado Joseph: My opinion is that minimal suspensions (one, two or three games) are not a sufficient deterrent for players to avoid making dangerous hits that can, and often do result in injury! The Philadelphia Flyers are a proud but desperate hockey club. They have dug a huge hole for themselves that will be very difficult, if not impossible to overcome this season. But like a proud fighter that is on the ropes and unwilling to go down, the Flyers have plenty of fight left in them. They came out swinging once the fuse was lit after Zac Rinaldo ran Kris Letang from behind into the boards. While I have to question the very poor judgment Rinaldo displayed for making this dangerous hit on Letang he spoke nothing but the truth, that his actions did in fact change the whole complexion of the game. Probably not the most intelligent thing to do either! Rinaldo has been extended the courtesy of an in-person hearing with the Player Safety Committee for any susspension that can exceed five games.dddddddddddd While Rinaldos post-game comments certainly wont help his defence, the length of suspension will be determined based on the circumstance surrounding the hit, the resulting injury to Letang and Rinaldos past history. The evidence that must be considered is that the illegal hit was very late (Letang did not have the puck), Letang was facing the boards in a defenceless position, Rinaldo elevated and left his feet through the illegal hit, the contact was made to the back of Letang and resulted in injury to the Pittsburgh player (Letang did not return to the game). This is boarding and the correct call was made on the ice by the referee to assess a major and game misconduct penalty. Rinaldos fate is now in the hands of the Player Safety Committee but I dont think he has quite entered Matt Cooke circa 2011 territory, although he is certainly moving in that direction. My guess is this incident will fall somewhere in line with Daniel Carcillos recent suspension of six games. The Flyers and Penguins have established an intense modern day rivalry that boiled over in a playoff game in Philadelphia a couple of years ago when Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang engaged in fights with Claude Giroux and Kimmo Timonen during a stoppage in play. This latest incident and game between these two teams has only escalated the hostilities they feel for one another. The next home-and-home meeting between these two teams is on April 1 in Pittsburgh and then back in Philly four days later. Unless Rinaldo is involved in a subsequent incident worthy of suspension prior to those meetings, he will most likely make a statement of sorts in an attempt to change those games as well. Players like Rinaldo, Carcillo, Cooke (circa 2011) and others just see it as their role and responsibility. ' ' '
