Tyus Battle hit a jumper from just inside the 3-point line with 2.5 seconds left to help Syracuse complete a furious second-half rally in a 72-71 win over the visiting Georgetown Hoyas on Saturday afternoon.

Jessie Govan had 22 points, and Mac McClung added 18 to lead the Hoyas, who led by 13 at the half but collapsed early in the second half to fall to 7-2 on the season. A desperation half-court heave at the buzzer from the Hoyas' Jahvon Blair clanged on the back of the basket, and the Orange (7-2) moved to 6-0 at home.
