Howard leads Syracuse past Pitt 59-45

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) Frank Howard saw to it that Syracuse didn't make history Tuesday.

The Orange had never lost five games in a row in the 42-year tenure of Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim, but coming off a disheartening double-overtime loss at No. 23 Florida State, that prospect loomed - even against a Pittsburgh team that entered the Carrier Dome winless in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The last time Syracuse lost five games in a row came during the 1968-69 season.

Howard's 18-points, career-high seven rebounds, five steals and four assists led the Orange (13-6, 2-4 ACC) to a much-needed 59-45 win over Pittsburgh (8-11, 0-6), snapping a four-game losing streak.
