PITTSBURGH (AP) - Tyler Ennis made a 35-footer at the buzzer to help No. 1 Syracuse remain unbeaten with a 58-56 win over No. 25 Pitt on Wednesday night.

Syracuse (24-0, 11-0 ACC) remained one of two undefeated teams in Division I along with Wichita State.

Trailing by one with 4.4 seconds left, Ennis caught the inbounds pass and dribble up the court before hitting the shot over two defenders.

Talib Zanna, who led Pitt (20-5, 8-4) with 16 points and 14 rebounds, had given Pitt a 56-55 lead with 4.4 seconds remaining after he hit two free throws.

It was Pitt's first loss at home to a top-five team in the 12-year history of the Petersen Events Center, their on-campus arena. The Panthers (20-5, 8-4) had been 9-0 against top-five teams and 13-1 against teams ranked in the top 10.

C.J. Fair led Syracuse with 14 points.
