LAHAINA, Hawaii — C.J. Fair scored 16 points and had 10 rebounds as No. 8 Syracuse held off Minnesota, 75-67, on Monday in the first round of the Maui Invitational.

The Orange (5-0) pushed through a late run by the Golden Gophers, who pulled within 67-65 with little more than two minutes left.

But Minnesota (5-1) committed four turnovers in the final two minutes, scoring only once more when Austin Hollins hit a meaningless layup in the game’s final moments.

Trevor Cooney scores 15 points all on 3-pointers, while Tyler Ennis and Jerami Grant scored 12 points each.

Malik Smith had 16 points for Minnesota.

Syracuse led by only three points at halftime. But the Orange started the second half with a 13-2 run mostly led by Fair, who hit two jumpers, two free throws and a tip-in as Syracuse tallied 10 straight points.
