SYRACUSE — Trae Golden scored 16 points, including six clutch free throws in the final seconds, and Georgia Tech stunned struggling No. 7 Syracuse, 67-62, on Tuesday night.

Syracuse (26-4, 13-4 ACC) had lost three of four coming into the game and dropped three more spots in the rankings after starting the season with 25 straight wins and spending three weeks at No. 1.

Georgia Tech (14-16, 5-12) snapped a four-game losing streak.

It was the second straight home loss for Syracuse and cost the Orange a great chance to lock up a high seed in the conference tournament next week.

It was the final home game in the careers of seniors C.J. Fair and Baye Moussa Keita, and it was one they will long remember — for all the wrong reasons despite Fair’s 28 points, which matched his career high.

Daniel Miller had 15 points and Robert Carter Jr. added 12 for Georgia Tech.
