SYRACUSE, N.Y. — C.J. Fair tipped in the go-ahead basket with 19.4 seconds left and No. 3 Syracuse rallied past No. 21 Cincinnati 57-55 on Monday.

Fair's tip came after Jerami Grant drove the lane and missed. Cincinnati's Cashmere Wright missed a 3 from straight on with 2.9 seconds left and the Orange had their 35th straight win at home, the longest active streak in Division I.
 
Fair had 13 points for Syracuse (18-1, 6-0 Big East), which was coming off a 70-68 win at then-No. 1 Louisville.
 
Syracuse is 28-1 in regular-season play in the Big East the past two years, the loss at Notre Dame one year ago Monday.
 
Sean Kilpatrick had 21 points for the Bearcats (16-4, 4-3), who had won three straight.

The Irish (15-4, 3-3 Big East) went on long stretches without scoring in both halves, while Georgetown (13-4, 3-3) shot 53 percent from the field.
 
It was Notre Dame's third Big East home loss over their past 24 conference home games.
 
Jerian Grant led Notre Dame with 13 points.
 
Notre Dame scored only eight points over the first 10 minutes, hitting just three of their first 10 shots from the field.

NORMAN, Okla. — Romero Osby scored a career-high 29 points, Amath M'Baye had three rim-rattling dunks among his 15 points and Oklahoma snapped a six-game Red River Rivalry losing streak by beating Texas on Monday night.
 
Osby scored 21 of Oklahoma's 33 points during a 14½-minute stretch in the middle of the game, powering the Sooners (13-4, 4-1 Big 12) to their first win against the Longhorns since he transferred from Mississippi State.
