    GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Brittney Sykes scored 10 points to help Syracuse beat Clemson 63-53 in Thursday's second round of the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.

    Sykes scored two straight baskets to cap an 8-0 second-half burst for the fifth-seeded Orange (22-8), pushing Syracuse to a 52-41 lead with 6:47 left. Clemson got no closer than nine again.

    The Orange advanced to Friday's quarterfinals to play No. 14 North Carolina State, the fourth seed.

    Rachel Coffey, Brianna Butler and La'Shay Taft each scored nine points for Syracuse, which shot 40 percent with seven 3-pointers.

    Nikki Dixon and Nyilah Jamison-Myers each scored 15 points for the 13th-seeded Tigers (13-19), who beat Virginia Tech in Wednesday's first round.

    Clemson shot 43 percent but went 2-for-12 from 3-point range.

    Syracuse was playing in its first ACC tournament game and has won at least one game in five straight league tournaments, the past four coming in the Big East.
