SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Boston College stunned No. 1 Syracuse in an overtime thriller Wednesday evening, giving the Orange their first loss of the season.

The Assocated Press reports that the Eagles (7-19, 3-10 ACC) rallied to defeat the Orange (25-1, 12-1 ACC) 62-59 after being down by as many as 13 points in the second half.

This leaves No. 3 Wichita State as the only undefeated Division I team.

Syracuse travels to Durham, N.C., Saturday to take on No. 5 Duke.
