This year, however, we’ve had more stability. From week 6 to week 13, Arizona and Syracuse, both undefeated, were ranked first and second. Then Arizona finally lost a game, and the two switched places for weeks 14 and 15. Now the Wildcats are just sitting around, waiting for the Orange to lose a game.
Last night they probably thought for a moment that it was going to happen. The No. 25 Pittsburgh Panthers led Syracuse by six points with just under two minutes left in the game, but the Orange came back and finally took a 55-54 lead on two free throws with ten seconds on the clock. However, a foul by Syracuse with just four seconds left sent Pitt to the line, and when they hit their two free throws, they once again grabbed a one-point lead.
