Syracuse, NY (SportsNetwork.com/WSYR-TV) - Michael Gbinije's layup off a Jerami Grant steal broke a tie with about a minute remaining and ninth-ranked Syracuse survived for a 56-50 win over upset-minded St. Francis Brooklyn.

Gbinije's bucket was part of the Orange's game-ending 10-0 run.

The Terriers, bidding for their first-ever win over a top-10 team, were shut out after a Wayne Martin free throw gave them a 50-46 lead with 4:10 left.

Sophomore DaJuan Coleman made all five of his field goals and matched his career high with 14 points to lead Syracuse, which shot just 35.3 percent. Grant had 13 points and eight rebounds.

Junior Jalen Cannon scored 16 points with eight boards and Martin added 13 points for the Terriers (2-2).

With the victory, the Orange move to 4-0 on the season.
