Jerami Grant scored eight points in overtime to finish with a career-high 24 and Jim Boeheim's No. 2 Syracuse stayed unbeaten, topping Mike Krzyzewski's No. 17 Duke 91-89 on Saturday in a matchup of the two winningest coaches in Division I history.

C.J. Fair scored a career-best 28 as Syracuse (21-0, 8-0 ACC) set a school record for consecutive wins to start a season.

Playing in front of a charged-up crowd of 35,46, the largest ever at the Carrier Dome, Syracuse remained one of two undefeated teams in the nation, along with No. 4 Wichita State. Top-ranked Arizona was handed its first loss of the season late Saturday night at California, putting the Orange in position to take over the No. 1 ranking on Monday.

Duke's Rasheed Sulaimon beat the buzzer in regulation with an off-balance 3-pointer that tied it at 78. The Blue Devils led 87-84 with 80 seconds left in overtime before Syracuse rallied.

Jabari Parker had 15 points and nine rebounds before fouling out in regulation for Duke (17-5, 6-3).
