SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Syracuse is back in the Final Four, compliments of its stifling zone defense.
In the Orange's four tournament wins, opponents have shot 61 of 211 (28.9 percent) and 14 of 91 (15.3 percent) from behind the arc.
The long arms of the Orange - led by centers Baye Moussa Keita and Rakeem Christmas - also have blocked 25 shots and nabbed 33 steals.
The emergence of Keita, a native of Senegal, has come despite not starting a single game since his freshman year.
