Tyler Ennis' buzzer-beating three-pointer saved an undefeated season for the Syracuse Orange on Wednesday night. The nation's top-ranked team stunned No. 25 Pitt at the Petersen Events Center, 58-56.

The Orange freshman finished with 13 points and five assists to make the Orange the first top-five visiting team to win at Petersen. Senior star C.J. Fair added 14 points (a team high), including 10 after halftime.

Talib Zanna, who led all scorers with 16, had hit two free throws to give Pitt the lead with 4.4 seconds remaining. He and Lamar Patterson combined for 30 points, or more than half of the Panthers' total.

The Orange are still a long way from finishing the year without a loss: road games with Duke and Virginia still loom on the schedule. The Panthers, meanwhile, will be gearing up for a trip to Chapel Hill on Saturday while wondering what might have been after a heartbreaking home loss.
