After a week-long hiatus following the rout of Binghamton, the Syracuse basketball team headed to Madison Square Garden for a meeting with St. John's.
The Orange jumped out to a 39-27 halftime lead, only to let the Johnnies storm back and gain control late in the second half. Some late missed free throws and turnovers by St. John's, combined with some more C.J. Fair clutchness, spurred the Orange to a 68-63 victory.
Of course, a win is a win, so there are always encouraging signs to point to. But allowing a team to come back from a double-digit deficit is cause for concern. Let's take a look at some of the best and worst from Syracuse's win at the world's most famous arena.
