John Gillon nails game-winner for Syracuse on Wednesday

Syracuse Orange senior guard John Gillon scored a game-high 26 points including the game-winning three in Wednesday's 78-75 win over the Duke Blue Devils.

What It Means:

Gillon sank three three-pointers with none bigger than the one he hit at the buzzer to give the Orange a much-needed win for their NCAA Tournament resume. The senior broke out of a two-game shooting slump -- where he went 5-for-21 (23.8 percent) -- to sink 9-of-14 shot attempts for his most points in three weeks.

Gillon is averaging just 11.1 points per game on the year, but he's boosted it to 18.8 points over his last eight contests.
