Syracuse's Brandon Triche drives past Cincinnati's Jaquon Parker on Monday.

The Orange (21-1, 8-1 Big East) used a late 12-2 run to pull away from the Bearcats (15-6, 5-3), who failed to turn the energy from their first home sellout into a signature win.

Instead, Boeheim came away with career victory No. 877, moving him ahead of Adolph Rupp into sole possession of fourth place on the Division I coaching list.

NO. 5 KANSAS 64, TEXAS A&M 54

In Lawrence, Kan., Thomas Robinson carried Kansas when things looked bleak, scoring 16 of his 18 points in the second half and leading the Jayhawks to a win over scrappy Texas A&M.

Kansas (17-3, 7-0 Big 12) is 18-1 against Texas A&M (11-8, 2-5), the lone loss coming in February 2007.
