C.J. Fair totaled 22 points, seven rebounds and four steals as the visiting Orange wrapped up their regular season by topping the Seminoles.

Syracuse (27-4, 14-4 ACC) badly needed this win after losing four of its previous five games and will be the No. 2 seed in the ACC tournament. Tyler Ennis chipped in 16 points while Jerami Grant - who missed much of the last three games with a back injury - returned to score 16 points with eight rebounds.

The Orange dominated the boards 43-24, although Okaro White had 20 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Seminoles (18-12, 9-9). Ian Miller (16 points) and Aaron Thomas (14) were the other primary contributors for Florida State, which had won three straight games.

Ennis scored seven points during a 10-0 run late in the first half that propelled the Orange to a 33-27 lead at intermission. Fair scored the first six Syracuse points of the second half, but Florida State rallied to get within 47-46 on White's jumper with 12 1/2 minutes left.

The Orange responded by scoring 12 of the next 14 points, beginning with two 3-pointers by Cooney and ending with Grant's three-point play. Rakeem Christmas added 12 points, six rebounds and a pair of blocks for Syracuse while Baye Moussa Keita had seven rebounds and two blocks off the bench.
