SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Trevor Cooney scored 21 points, Tyler Ennis had 20 and C.J. Fair added 17 Saturday, rallying No. 2 Syracuse past No. 8 Villanova 78-62 in a game between two of nine unbeaten teams left in Division I.

Syracuse (12-0) was the third unbeaten ranked team the Wildcats (11-1) had faced this season. Villanova handed then-No. 2 Kansas its first loss of the season a month ago in the semifinals of the Battle 4 Atlantis and came back the next night and defeated No. 23 Iowa in overtime.

Villanova dropped to 13-16 against Syracuse in the Carrier Dome, the best mark of any team that's played 10 games under the Orange's Teflon roof, and 4-5 since Jay Wright took over as coach of the Wildcats in 2001.

James Bell hit a career-high six 3-pointers and matched his career high with 25 points to lead Villanova before fouling out with 1:42 left.
