BUFFALO, N.Y. -- It wasnt supposed to end this way for senior C.J. Fair and Syracuse. After starting the season with 25 straight wins and being ranked No. 1 for three weeks, the faltering Orange lost 55-53 to pesky Dayton on Saturday night in the third round of the NCAA tournament, their dreams of a second straight trip to the Final Four dashed by too many misses from 3-point range and a team that refused to cave at the end. "Theyre a small team, but theyre scrappy," Fair said. "Every time we had the ball, they got a hand in there. They set the tone early. We were playing catch-up the whole game." The third-seeded Orange (28-6), who finished second in their first year in the Atlantic Coast Conference, struggled all game against the swarming Dayton defence. Syracuse led only twice in the second half, falling behind for good after two free throws by Devin Oliver gave Dayton a 41-40 lead with 6:18 to play. Syracuse missed all 10 attempts from beyond the arc, while the Flyers hit seven times from long range. It was the first time in 665 games that Syracuse failed to make a 3. "Its hard to win making layups," Orange coach Jim Boeheim said. "At some point in time, you need to knock something down from the perimeter, and we didnt. It was just not a good offensive game for us. If the other team makes five or six 3s and you make five or six layups, youre six points down. That was what I saw out there tonight." Syracuse star freshman point guard Tyler Ennis was open at the top of the key with 2 seconds left and the Flyers holding a two-point lead. When Ennis attempt to win the game clanged harmlessly off the rim, Dayton had a victory it had been chasing for three decades. "We have a good program with great tradition," coach Archie Miller said after his 11th-seeded Flyers reached the Sweet 16 for the first time in 30 years. "Now, we have the ability to build, and thats what its all about." Ennis had beaten Pittsburgh last month with a 40-foot shot at the buzzer, so he had the confidence to try again, even though Syracuse had missed nine attempts from behind the arc. "The last shot was a great shot. It was the right play," Boeheim said. "A chance to win the game. You dont have enough time to get to the basket. I have no problem with that shot." Neither did the 35-year-old Miller, though he probably aged just a little bit while the ball was in the air. "That thing was on line and he went for the win," Miller said. "The thing that went through my head was the game at Pitt, when I saw that highlight 7,000 times. I thought he was going to go to the basket. When I saw him raise up, I didnt feel good about it. But Buffalos been good to us these last couple of days on the buzzer shots." It sure has. Vee Sanfords basket with 3.8 seconds left was the margin of victory in Daytons one-point win over in-state rival Ohio State on Thursday. After that game, the Dayton Daily News mocked Buckeyes fans who refer to "The Ohio State University" with a headline that read: "THE University of Dayton." Dayton (25-10) now advances to the South Regional semifinals next week against No. 2 seed Kansas or 10th-seeded Stanford. Syracuse was in position to pull this one out, but Ennis also missed a foul-line jumper with 8 seconds left. He was down in the subdued locker room, with red faces all around, but confident he had made the right decision as he had so many times in a standout season. "Its hard to digest any loss," said Ennis, who finished with 19 points on 7-of-21 shooting. "They did a good job defensively, and the looks we did get we didnt capitalize." Dyshawn Pierre scored 14 points and Jordan Sibert, held scoreless in the first half, hit a key 3-pointer with 47.7 seconds for Dayton. Sibert finished with 10 points and Sanford had eight, but Sibert nearly gave it away when he stepped out of bounds while the Orange pressured him in the corner with 14 seconds left. After Ennis settled for a jumper from the foul line that missed, instead of driving the lane as he had all night, Syracuse fouled Pierre and he made one free throw, giving the Orange one more golden opportunity that they didnt take advantage of. Fair had 14 points on 4-of-14 shooting and 10 rebounds in his final game for the Orange. Jerami Grant had just four points and attempted only three shots before fouling out late. Trevor Cooney, who broke out of a long slump with four 3-pointers in the second round against Western Michigan, had two points and missed all four shots he took from behind the arc. "When you make shots, you win. When you dont make shots, you lose in close games," Boeheim said. "Early in the year, we made shots." Mark Gastineau Jersey ."

Venable, the son of former big leaguer Max Venable, will make $4.The Tampa Bay Lightning and Montreal Canadiens share the Eastern Conference lead, and two of the hottest teams in the NHL appear to be in for a tight battle with each other for the Atlantic Division crown as the season progresses. Their first meeting wasnt much of a contest, though, thanks in large part to Steven Stamkos. You can listen to all the action live on TSN Radio 690 Montreal with coverage beginning at 6pm et. The Lightning look to prevent Montreal from recording its longest winning streak in nearly nine years while recording their fourth straight regular-season victory over the Canadiens on Tuesday night. These clubs hold a one-point edge on Pittsburgh and the New York Islanders for the East lead, though Montreal (26-11-2) has two games in hand on Tampa Bay (25-12-4). The Lightning have won five of six after beating Ottawa 4-2 on Sunday to rebound from Fridays 6-3 loss to the Penguins. Stamkos gave Tampa the lead for good with 3:55 left in the second period, and Tyler Johnson put it away with his second goal of the game in the third. Were starting to come back (in games) a little bit, and I think its just the kids are maturing understanding that youve got to stick to the plan, said coach Jon Cooper, whose club trailed midway through the second. Stamkos only two points over his previous six were a goal and an assist in a come-from-behind 3-2 win over Toronto on Dec. 29. Things havent been going great lately so (Im) just trying to work hard, Stamkos said. It was good to see that one go in and hopefully get things rolling. Stamkos didnt have much trouble scoring against the Canadiens on Oct. 13, netting a hat trick in a 7-1 rout in the first meeting since Moontreal swept the Lightning in the first round of last seasons playoffs.dddddddddddd Tampa is 4-0-1 in the last five regular-season meetings with the Canadiens, who completed a perfect four-game road trip with Saturdays 4-1 win over Pittsburgh. Theyve won nine of 10 overall, and on Tuesday can win a seventh straight for the first time since an eight-game run March 23-April 6, 2006. It shows a lot of character in this locker room, said defenseman Tom Gilbert, who had a goal. We know that were going home and I just think we use that confidence that weve been playing (well) on the road here. Montreal is the only team in the league without a loss when scoring first, going 16-0-0. I think weve been playing our best hockey and been doing really good things with the puck, Gilbert said. Weve been keeping it simple. Carey Price made 30 saves to improve to 8-1-0 with a 1.34 goals-against average over his last nine, but he wasnt nearly as sharp in the first meeting with Tampa Bay. He gave up four goals on 23 shots through two periods and was pulled for the only time in his 32 starts this season. Price is 1-2-2 with a 2.04 GAA in his last five regular-season starts against the Lightning, who have held the Canadiens to one non-shootout goal in each contest in that stretch. Ben Bishop, who missed all of last seasons playoff series with Montreal due to injury, could be in net for the Lightning. Hes 6-1-2 with a 1.27 GAA in nine career starts against the Canadiens. Montreal forward P.A. Parenteau will miss his second straight game with an upper-body injury. Tampa Bay defenseman Radko Gudas will have arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday and is out indefinitely.
