Posted March 14, 2013 on AP on Fox
James Southerland had a second straight great effort from 3-point range and Michael Carter-Williams scored Syracuse's last seven points as the 19th-ranked Orange held off No. 17 Pittsburgh 62-59 on Thursday in the quarterfinals of the Big East tournament. It was the last meeting between the schools under the Big East banner as they are both leaving for the Atlantic Coast Conference next season. The final 1:15 of the game was a great way for the programs to play one last time in the Big East. Southerland had 20 points as he did in the win over Seton Hall and again almost all the points came from beyond the 3-point arc. He was 6 for 6 on 3s against Pittsburgh, a day after going 6 for 9 from beyond the arc against Seton Hall. Carter-Williams had 11 points and seven assists for the fifth-seeded Orange (25-8), who will meet top-seeded Georgetown in the semifinals on Friday night.
