SYRACUSE, N. Mens Under Armour Shoes Clearance .Y. -- Trevor Cooney has hit shooting touch back -- just in the nick of time for top-ranked Syracuse. Cooney scored a career-high 33 points, matching a school record with nine 3-pointers, and the Orange beat Notre Dame 61-55 on Monday night in another matchup of former Big East foes. After struggling to a woeful 25.4 per cent (14 of 55) from behind the arc in his first seven Atlantic Coast Conference games, Cooney has hit 11 of 13 in the past two games and was the difference against the Irish as the Oranges front line faltered. "It feels good," Cooney said. "I kind of got going and guys just found me in good spots." Syracuse (22-0, 9-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), which moved to No. 1 this week after its scintillating 91-89 overtime victory over Duke on Saturday night and Arizonas loss to California, extended its school record for most consecutive wins to start a season. Notre Dame (12-11, 3-7) has lost seven of nine. Two days after one of the most emotional wins in Jim Boeheims 38 years as head coach, Syracuse played its first game as the nations top team since the 2011-12 season. Two years ago, the Orange were unbeaten and ranked No. 1 when they went to South Bend, and Notre Dame upset them 67-58. It was the eighth time Notre Dame had beaten a No. 1 team and turned out to be Syracuses lone loss of the regular season. "That was in the back of my mind," said C.J. Fair, who had a season-low six points on 2-of-13 shooting after scoring a career-high 28 against Duke. "I didnt want that to happen again." Cooney made sure there was no repeat, hitting five 3-pointers in the first half as the Orange gained a 13-point halftime advantage, then barely held the Irish at bay in the second half. "We put ourselves in position to make it interesting," Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said. "We came into this game, and especially if you watch what they did to Duke, beating them up in the paint. You really try to take stuff away in the paint. I thought overall with the guys that destroy you in the paint we did a good job. But we couldnt do a good job on Cooney. Seven of the nine I think we challenged. He was just in one of those zones, and youve got to take your hat off." Cooney, 9 of 12 from long range, matched the record set by Gerry McNamara in the 2004 NCAA tournament and equaled by Andy Rautins in 2008 and James Southerland in 2012. Jerami Grant and Fair, who combined for 54 points against Duke, combined for just 15, while Tyler Ennis found little room in the lane to penetrate and finished with six points and eight assists. Garrick Sherman led Notre Dame with 16 points, Steve Vasturia had 13, and Pat Connaughton 11, while Eric Atkins had nine on 3-of-10 shooting. Notre Dame closed within 38-32 on a 3-pointer from Atkins with 14:19 to play, but Syracuse responded with seven straight points. Grant slammed home a dunk after his block on Sherman and Fair followed with a slam off a Grant miss. Cooney completed the run with his seventh 3-pointer, which tied his personal best. The Irish have four long-range threats in Atkins, Connaughton, Vasturia, and Demetrius Jackson, who had combined for 127 3-pointers on the season entering the game, and Notre Dames long-range attack came alive in the second half after going 1 of 6 in the first 20 minutes. Two 3-pointers by Atkins, Vasturias three-point play and a slam dunk by Tom Knight moved the Irish back within 43-40 with 8:41 to go. Grant responded with a spinning drive through the lane and Cooney hit another 3. Grant then fed Cooney for a reverse layup and three-point play and Cooney hit his ninth 3 for a 54-44 lead with 4:14 to play. Notre Dame refused to wilt, pulling back to 54-49 on Connaughtons three-point play at 2:52. "Thats who this group is," Brey said. "We havent been able to get over the hump and win enough. Weve been down on the road just about every time, and we come back and give ourselves a chance. I love that about us. If we keep doing that enough, I think well get a couple of them." Grants layup off a feed from Ennis and two free throws by Ennis boosted the lead back to eight, and the Orange made it interesting when Ennis and Fair each missed the front end of 1-and-1s in the final minute. Atkins missed a floater and Connaughton was off on a 3-point attack in the final seconds. "I had a look and missed, which would have been a really big shot for us," Atkins said. "That was a huge play. But they played great. They made plays when they were needed." Under Armour Scorpio Black .

Hes the right guy. ... I believe in this team. I believe in the coach.Ross said his decision wasnt based on what happened Sunday, but the win certainly helped the Dolphins mood after dismal back-to-back losses spoiled their playoff hopes.Rookie Terrence Fede blocked a punt for a safety with 41 seconds left, and Ryan Tannehill threw four touchdown passes, the most by a Dolphins quarterback since Dan Marino in 1998. Miami outscored the Vikings 23-18 in a bizarre fourth quarter.Both teams went into the game playing for pride rather than a post-season berth. The Dolphins improved to 8-7 and have a shot at their first winning season since 2008.Philbin has a year left on his contract and a career record of 23-24.I want to compete for championships while Im the head coach of the Miami Dolphins, Philbin said. Its disappointing were not in it.Players said they were pleased to learn Philbin will be back in 2015.Thats exciting news for me, and I think everyone on the team, Tannehill said. We believe in coach Philbin and the program he has and everything he has set in place.The Vikings, who have been out of the playoff race since Thanksgiving, fell to 6-9 under first-year coach Mike Zimmer. They blew a 14-point lead to lose for the second week in a row.We made too many mistakes and penalties in crucial situations, Zimmer said. All of the things Ive been trying to preach for 11 months, we didnt do today.The Dolphins overcame a 14-0 deficit, and trailed again after giving up 15 points in an 11-second span in the fourth quarter.Tannehill then drove Miami 80 yards and hit Damien Williams for a 3-yard score with 1:11 left to make it 35-35. Minnesota failed to pick up a first down, and after the fourth-down snap bounced to punter Jeff Locke, Fede blocked the kick out of the end zone for the game-winner.I didnt kknow where the ball went, Fede said. Stephen Curry 3 Shoes. I was looking for it in the sky. Then I saw it land in the stands, and I knew it was two points.Tannehill went 35 for 47 for 396 yards, and directed an offence that totalled 36 first downs and 493 yards. He shook off a costly interception and two sacks and was knocked down at least eight other times.Mike Wallace caught touchdown passes of 16 and 7 yards and has 10 scores this year.Vikings rookie Teddy Bridgewater, playing in his hometown, was efficient but not as prolific as Tannehill. He went 19 for 25 for 259 yards and two scores, and said hes braced for teasing from friends and family about the outcome.Im pretty sure I wont hear the end of it in the off-season, he said. We just made too many mistakes.The Vikings trailed 28-20 but drove 59 yards for a touchdown and made the 2-point conversion with 4:46 to go. On the ensuing kickoff they recovered Jarvis Landrys fumble at the 5, and Matt Asiata ran for the go-ahead touchdown.Miami regrouped, and its tying drive was aided by a pass interference penalty on Xavier Rhodes on third-and-14. Rookie Williams scored his first career touchdown on the next play.Safety Harrison Smith set up a TD when he blitzed and intercepted Tannehills pass at point-blank range deep in Miami territory. Three plays later, Bridgewater led Greg Jennings perfectly for a 21-yard score and a 14-0 lead.But the Vikings, who squandered a two-touchdown cushion in a loss at Detroit last week, couldnt hold their leads against Miami, either. Lamar Millers 1-yard plunge on third down at the start of the fourth quarter put the Dolphins ahead for the first time.We weathered the storm, Miami cornerback Cortland Finnegan said. The football gods were smiling down on us. Youve just got to keep playing through the ups and downs.Notes: Vikings LB Chad Greenway hurt his knee in the first half. He was playing following the death of his father during the week. ... Dolphins DE Derrick Shelby had an interception but hurt his ankle in the third quarter. ... Miamis Jarvis Landry broke Terry Kirbys team record for receptions by a rookie with 79. ...
