PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- JayVaughn Pinkston had 25 points and 10 rebounds and Darrun Hilliard scored 23 points, keeping No. 7 Villanova undefeated with an 82-77 overtime win over Syracuse on Saturday.
The Wildcats (11-0) never led until overtime and rallied from a 15-point hole to stun their former Big East rival.
Josh Hart buried a 3-pointer and Pinkston tied the score 69-all with 4.2 seconds left in regulation on a basket off a turnover.
Hilliard's two free throws 57 seconds into OT gave Villanova its first lead of the game 71-69. He was kicked in the face during a scrum and was on the bench when Daniel Ochefu made two free throws that pushed the lead to 74-71.
Pinkston scored a late bucket, then added a monster block that preserved the lead with 15 seconds left.
Rakeem Christmas and Michael Gbinije each scored 18 points for Syracuse (6-4).
