Chris McCullough had 20 points, nine rebounds and a key steal with 8.4 seconds left, and No. 23 Syracuse held off Iowa 66-63 on Friday night in the 2K Classic consolation game.

Rakeem Christmas bounced back from his foul-plagued performance Thursday with 18 points for the Orange (3-1), who led by 15 in the second half but needed some key plays from McCullough, a freshman from the Bronx who had 13 after halftime.

The Hawkeyes trailed by as many as 15 points in the second half before Jarrod Uthoff with 20 points and Aaron White with 15 points and 12 rebounds helped lead a big rally for Iowa (2-2).

The Hawkeyes pulled to within 61-60 but couldn't get any closer.
