No. 2 Syracuse beats Connecticut 58-55 in quarterfinals of Big East tournament
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Dion Waiters had 18 points and James Southerland scored all 10 of his points in the final 8 minutes to lead No. 2 Syracuse to a 58-55 victory over Connecticut on Thursday in the quarterfinals of the Big East tournament, snapping the Huskies' 13-game postseason winning streak.

The top-seeded Orange (31-1) won their 11th straight game overall and advanced to face the winner of the Georgetown-Cincinnati game in the semifinals on Friday night at Madison Square Garden.

But not before these rivals added another chapter to their Big East tournament history.



Shabazz Napier had 15 points and Andre Drummond added 14 for the ninth-seeded Huskies (20-13), who were trying to duplicate last year's first-ever five-game run to the Big East tournament title that was followed by a six-game streak that brought the school its third national championship.
