SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- — Joe Girard made two free throws with 0.8 seconds left in double overtime and Syracuse beat previously unbeaten Indiana 112-110 on Tuesday night in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
Syracuse (4-3) won a double-overtime game at home for the first time since Feb. 25, 1971.
In the second overtime, Indiana forward Miller Kopp was fouled on a deep 3-point attempt with 7.6 seconds to go, and made all three free throws to tie it at 110. Girard took the inbounds pass and got it to Jimmy Boeheim for a give-and-go before driving the lane to force a foul, leading to the go-ahead free throws.
Indiana (6-1), which had 25 turnovers and overcame an 18-point, second-half deficit, didn't get off a shot at the final buzzer.
Buddy Boeheim scored 27 points and Jimmy Boeheim added a career-high 26 to lead Syracuse. Girard finished with 22 points. They combined for 12 of the Orange's 13 3-pointers.
“This is what we work for every day as a team. We’re capable of doing a lot of good things,” Buddy said. “Everyone can help us. Just a great effort from everyone. We’re not going to quit.”
Syracuse essentially had the game won in regulation when they fouled Khristian Lander with a three-point lead and 2.6 seconds remaining. Lander made the first free throw and intentionally missed the second, but Benny Williams fouled Trayce Jackson-Davis on the putback. Jackson-Davis made both free throws to force the first overtime tied at 88.
Jackson-Davis, who scored a career-high 43 points against Marshall, led the Hoosiers with 31 points and 16 rebounds. Kopp added a career-best 28 points. Race Thompson had 17 points, 12 rebounds and eight assists. Parker Stewart chipped in 20 points before fouling out.
