UConn Vs. Syracuse Final Score: Huskies' Upset Bid Falls Short

A Tyler Olander free throw with six minutes and 28 seconds remaining in the second half brought the Huskies to within two points of the second-ranked Syracuse Orange. The score was 63-61 and the Huskies were in great position to pull off the upset, while adding an impressive win to their Tournament resume. Following that free throw, however; Syracuse's Scoop Jardine hit consecutive three pointers and the Orange went on a 22-6 run to end the game, dropping the Huskies by a final of 85-76.

Each team had four players score in double figures. Jardine scored a game-high 21 on only nine shots. He added six assists, two rebounds and only turned the ball over once.

The Huskies next game is scheduled for February 15 when they host the DePaul Blue Demons.
