LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Jim Boeheim and Syracuse remained perfect in Maui. C.J. Fair scored 14 of his 24 points in the second half and No. 8 Syracuse beat No. 18 Baylor 74-67 on Wednesday night for the title. The Orange (7-0) delivered three wins in three days, taking control against Baylor midway through the first half and limiting the Bears hopes of a comeback. Syracuse beat Minnesota on Monday and California on Tuesday, improving to 9-0 all-time at Maui. The Orange also won the tournament in 1990 and 1998. "And guess what -- Im never coming back," said Boeheim jokingly after the game in a television interview. He later told reporters: "The next time I come to Maui I will have my golf clubs." Fair won the tournaments MVP, taking home a wooden trophy shaped like a basketball. After the game, he posed for photos with several fans with the hardware before walking off the floor. "Im still in the moment, so Im good to go," Fair said. "Tomorrow at practice, itll hit me then." Syracuse stopped would-be runs by Baylor several times. The loss snapped Baylors 11-game winning streak -- longest in the nation -- dating back to last seasons NIT championship run. "I thought we left here becoming a better team," Baylor coach Scott Drew said. "Obviously theres not much time to work on anything but Im pleased with our players, how they battled." Baylor had a 10-2 run to make it 68-62 with Cory Jefferson dunking an alley-oop pass, but Fair responded immediately with a jumper with just over two minutes left. Earlier, Baylor pulled to within 4 points when Jefferson tipped in a missed shot by Kenny Chery, but Syracuse answered with a 10-point run capped by a steal by Trevor Cooney that led to a fast break and a layup for Tyler Ennis to make it 66-52 with just over five minutes left. Jerami Grant scored 19 points and also made the events all-tournament team. Cooney and Ennis scored 11 points each. Syracuse shot just under 51 per cent, hanging on in the second half after shooting 57.1 per cent before halftime. Baylor outscored Syracuse by 1 point in the second half. "We are figuring out how to make plays. Three nights in a row against good teams -- this was a really good tournament for us," Boeheim said. Jefferson led Baylor (6-1) with 15 points. Brady Heslip and Chery had 12 points each. "There is always room for improvement win or lose no matter what happens," Jefferson said. "Were just going to go back, watch film of the games, over this whole tournament. Look at the things we did wrong and improve it." Syracuse jumped to a 10-2 lead on 3-pointers by Fair and Ennis and a jumper from Cooney. Baylor quickly closed the gap and took a 16-14 lead on Brady Heslips 3-pointer. Fair later scored five straight points to give Syracuse its first double-digit lead of the night midway through the first half. First, he hit a 3 from the left corner. He then thought about shooting a long jumper the next possession, but instead pulled the ball down and drove to the basket, laying it in left-handed. cheap nfl jerseys .

HOUSTON -- Terrence Jones said he is feeling more comfortable and confident on the floor. It has showed the last two games. Jones scored a career-high 24 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the Houston Rockets to their third straight victory, 109-85 over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night. Jones, who tied his previous career high with 14 points Saturday against Denver, was 10 of 12 from the field as the Rockets shot 57 per cent as a team, including 72 per cent in the first half in building a 24-point halftime lead. "Im just trying to make the simple plays and trying to be there for cuts and offensive rebounds," said Jones, who has started the last four games. "Im just trying to do all the things to help us win." Patrick Beverley chipped in 16 points, James Harden added 15 points, five rebounds and five assists, and Dwight Howard had 10 points and 11 rebounds. Jeremy Lin and Chandler Parsons each had 11 points as the Rockets raced out to a 17-point, first-quarter lead and were never threatened. Houston also never trailed in its 122-111 victory over Denver and has not trailed since falling behind New York 61-60 with 7:41 remaining in the third quarter Thursday, a span of 112 minutes, 19 seconds. Houston coach Kevin McHale said he hoped his team was catching a rhythm. "I think the guys have done a really good job of being attentive and making corrections," McHale said. "Weve still got a long way to go, but were getting better all the time. Thats the encouraging thing. We have a lot of room for improvement still, but I can feel us starting to jell a little bit." Courtney Lee had 17 points, Avery Bradley added 11 and Jared Sullinger had 10 points and nine rebounds off the bench for Boston, which lost its fourth in a row. The Celtics shot 32 per cent. Boston coach Brad Stevens said he didnt have anything he was excited about from Tuesdays game. "I want to make sure we dont play like that again, so I never look at it as it was just one of those things because there is something behind when you dont play the way youre supposed to," Stevens said. "There are games where things just dont go your way, but were letting one end affect the other, and you dont do that against good teams." The Rockets jumped out to an 18-1 lead in the first 5 minutes, capped by a follow dunk by Jones, who had six in the game-opening run.ddddddddddddBeverley had five points in the stretch for Houston. Howard pointed to Houstons defence as the reason the Rockets ran out to the big lead. "Terrence and myself tried to do a better job of protecting the paint and forcing teams to only get one shot," Howard said. "Once we do that, our young guys can get out and run. They did a good job of that tonight, of getting out and running early. We set the tone. Thats what we have to do." Boston got its first point of the game on Jordan Crawfords free throw 45 seconds in after a Houston defensive 3-second call, but the Celtics missed their first nine shots and had three turnovers before Bradley hit a jumper with 6:46 left in the first to cut the lead to 18-3. "It was a slow start," Lee said. "We werent making shots, and were not executing our offence, and Houston got out and were running and were making easy layups, and everything they were running was working against us. It was definitely a bad start for us." Boston, which shot 24 per cent in the first quarter, cut the lead to 28-18 on Sullingers layup with 2:28 left in the period. However, Houston, which shot 80 per cent in the first quarter, responded by ending the quarter on a 12-0 run capped by Omri Casspis 3-pointer to lead 40-18 after one. Houston pushed the lead to 43-18 on a 3-pointer by Beverley a minute into the second quarter and Boston never got the lead below 18 the rest of the way. The Rockets led 68-44 at the half and stretched the lead to 35 at 88-53 on Howards follow shot with 4 minutes to go in the third. NOTES: Houston C Omer Asik, who has been the subject of trade rumours, played Tuesday after missing the last two games. "I was just frustrated," Asik said at Tuesday mornings shootaround about missing the previous two games. "It is behind me now. Im looking forward to help my team win." Asik would not discuss reports that he asked to be traded. ...
