    SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Brittney Sykes scored six of her 20 points in the final 2:37, including the game-winning layup as time expired, and the No. 23 Syracuse women slipped past Saint Joseph's 64-62 Saturday.

    Rachel Coffey's 3-pointer with 3:32 to play gave Syracuse (10-1) its first lead, 58-57, since the opening minute of the second half.

    Coffey then blocked Ilze Gotfrida's jumper and a layup by Sykes extended the Orange lead to three, before Erin Shields tied the game on a 3-pointer with 2:20 remaining.

    Sykes broke the tie with a pair of free throws with 44 seconds to play but 23 seconds later Natasha Cloud knotted the game at 62, setting up Sykes' layup, which was reviewed by replay officials.

    Shields led the Hawks with 21 points, knocking down 7 of 12 3-pointers, seven rebounds and seven steals. Cloud recorded 12 assists.

    Briana Day added 10 points and 11 rebounds for Syracuse.
