SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Carl Krauser hit a 3-pointer with 47 seconds remaining and Chevon Troutman made four free throws in the final seconds to lead Pittsburgh to a season sweep of No. 9 Syracuse Monday night with a 68-64 victory.

It was the second straight home loss after a 16-game winning streak at the Carrier Dome for Syracuse (22-4, 9-3 Big East).

Pittsburgh (18-4, 8-3) won for the sixth time in seven games.

Troutman was 16-for-20 from the free throw line and finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds. Krauser had 15 points and five assists.

Louie McCroskey scored a career-high 18 points for the Orange, while Gerry McNamara had 16 points and 10 assists, and Hakim Warrick, plagued by foul trouble, matched his season-low with 12 points.

Texas Tech 80, No. 2 Kansas 79, 2 OT

LUBBOCK, Texas -- Darryl Dora hit a 3-pointer with 3.6 seconds remaining in the second overtime as Texas Tech handed Kansas its first conference loss this season.

A desperation shot by Aaron Miles bounced off the backboard as the buzzer sounded and the fans flooded the court and began to chant "Bobby, Bobby," for coach Bob Knight, who beat Kansas for the first time in his four seasons at Texas Tech.

Keith Langford scored all five points in the second overtime for the Jayhawks (20-2, 10-1 Big 12).

The 6-foot-9 Dora, who had missed his four 3-point attempts, got the chance to take the game-winner for the Red Raiders (16-6, 8-3) when Miles was called for traveling with 7.9 seconds left after grabbing the rebound of a missed 3-pointer by Jarrius Jackson.

Martin Zeno led Texas Tech with 24 points, while Ronald Ross had 21 points and 11 rebounds.

Langford led the Jayhawks with 24 points and Wayne Simien added 20 points and 13 rebounds.

No. 14 Utah 71, Wyoming 62

SALT LAKE CITY -- Andrew Bogut had 31 points and 13 rebounds and Utah extended its winning streak to 17 games.

Utah (22-3, 10-0 Mountain West) improved to 14-0 at home this season.

Marc Jackson and Richard Chaney each scored 12 points for the Utes, who used a 13-0 run and held Wyoming (14-9, 6-4) scoreless for a 7-minute stretch to pull away midway through the second half.

Jay Straight led the Cowboys with 16 points.
