NEW YORK - Taurean Green had 23 points and keyed a late second-half run to lead Florida over No. 16 Syracuse 75-70 in the championship game of the College Hoops Classic for Coaches vs. Cancer on Friday night.
Florida (4-0) trailed 62-60 with 6:43 left before it went on a 12-0 run. Green, named MVP of the tournament, had eight points during that span, including a 3-pointer with 1:52 left to cap the spurt and give the Gators a 72-62 lead, their biggest of the game.
The defending champion Orange (3-1) were led by Demetrius Nichols, who had a career-high 24 points. He hit five 3-pointers and had five rebounds.
Florida opened the second half with a 13-3 run to take a 56-47 advantage. Syracuse answered with a 15-4 run of its own as Terrence Roberts had eight points to give the Orange a 62-60 lead.
Syracuse's Gerry McNamara continued to struggle from the field. He was 5-for-19, including 3-for-11 on 3-pointers. He is 7-for-32 from behind the arc this season. McNamara finished with 13 points and 10 assists.
Lee Humphrey added 13 points and Joakim Noah had 12 for the Gators.
Roberts had 12 points and seven rebounds for Syracuse.
Nichols had 18 points in the first half to give Syracuse a 44-43 lead. His previous career high for a game was 17 against Providence in 2003-04.
NO. 19 WAKE FOREST 78, TEXAS TECH 73 (2OT): Justin Gray hit a jumper to force a second overtime then scored four of his 18 in the extra session in the consolation game.
Gray sent the game into the second overtime, hitting a 25-footer with 3.7 seconds left to tie it at 66. He also made a tough fall-away baseline jumper with 23.7 seconds left to give the Demon Deacons (3-1) a 75-70 lead. The Red Raiders are 2-2.
"This team is aging me," said Wake Forest coach Skip Prosser, who lost all three overtime games last season.
He has already won two, beating George Mason 83-78 in the first round of the tournament.
After Jarrius Jackson's 3-pointer pulled Texas Tech to 75-73, Gray hit two free throws to extend the lead to four. Jackson missed a 3-pointer from the wing and Trent Strickland's free throw finished it.
"They were able to capitalize on their chances," Texas Tech coach Bob Knight said. "It really was a good game for whoever won and a tough one for whoever lost."
