In Syracuse, N.Y., Jerami Grant scored eight points in overtime to finish with a career-high 24 as Jim Boeheim’s No. 2 Syracuse stayed unbeaten, topping Mike Krzyzewski’s No. 17 Duke 91-89 on Saturday in a matchup of the two winningest coaches in Division I history.

C.J. Fair scored a career-best 28 points as Syracuse (21-0, 8-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) set a school record for consecutive wins to start a season before a Carrier Dome-record crowd of 35,446. The Orange remained one of three undefeated teams in the nation, along with No. 4 Wichita State and No. 1 Arizona, which was in a close game late Saturday with Cal. See the result on S3.

Duke’s Rasheed Sulaimon beat the buzzer in regulation with an off-balance 3-pointer that tied it at 78. Jabari Parker had 15 points and nine rebounds for Duke (17-5, 6-3) before fouling out in regulation. The Blue Devils get a chance to avenge the loss in three weeks at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

In Austin, Texas, Isaiah Taylor scored 23 points and Jonathan Holmes added 22 to lift Texas to its sixth straight win. Texas, which lost its top four scorers from last year’s 16-18 squad, has been the surprise of the Big 12. The Longhorns have four consecutive wins over Top 25 opponents and now sit in second place after dominating a team that had been playing as well as anyone in the country in recent weeks.
