Chris McCullough had 20 points, nine rebounds and a key steal with 8.4 seconds left, and No. 23 Syracuse held off Iowa 66-63 on Friday night in the 2K Classic consolation game.
Rakeem Christmas bounced back from his foul-plagued performance Thursday with 18 points for the Orange (3-1), who led by 15 in the second half but needed some key plays from McCullough, a freshman from the Bronx who had 13 after halftime.
Christmas, Syracuse's leading scorer, was limited to eight points before fouling out in the Orange's 73-59 loss to California on Thursday.
The Orange finally got a comfortable margin with an 11-2 run that turned a four-point lead into a 48-35 advantage on Kaleb Joseph's basket with 12:36 left, and the lead reached 15 with 12:02 to play.
The Orange avoided what would've been their first back-to-back losses at Madison Square Garden in the same tournament since falling to South Carolina and Temple in the 2002 postseason NIT.
He's Ted Diaz, and he hasn't missed a home Rifle Bears high school football game in 62 years.
 at 92 years old, he has no intention of missing one this year, either.
The sixth-seeded Bears (11-1 overall) face off against the 10th-seeded Fort Morgan Mustangs (10-2) in the Class 3A semifinals for a berth in the state championship game on Nov.
A government report with significant implications for the U. S. energy industry says a struggling bird species needs a 3-mile buffer between its breeding grounds and oil and gas drilling, wind farms and solar projects.
A 3-mile buffer for the birds represents a much larger area than the no-occupancy zones where drilling and other activity is prohibited under some state and federal land management plans.
 those plans also contain more nuanced provisions, which backers say will protect sage grouse, such as seasonal restrictions on drilling or other activity and limits on the number of oil and gas wells within key sage grouse habitat.
BLM spokesman Jeff Krauss said the agency will use the new information as it works on changes to land use plans that include new sage grouse conservation measures.
By comparison, Montana and Wyoming have adopted management plans for the bird that call for a no-surface occupancy zone of six-tenths of a mile around breeding sites, or leks, in key sage grouse habitat.
The state plans also limit human activity within a larger area around breeding and nesting seasons.
 they take into account cumulative impacts, such as a restriction in Wyoming that limits oil companies to one well pad per square mile in key habitat.
