Oh that's right, you probably forgot it was just a quarterfinal game. The Big East Tournament continues, and 'Cuse has to somehow get it together for a semi-final match-up against West Virginia.
Scanning the important blogs / online and print publications, here's what people are saying this morning about one of the greatest college basketball games ever played.
- Troy Nunes is still shaking, so he just put up a bunch of pictures to convey his interpretation of last night's out-of-body experience with immortal characters.
- Rush the Court points out that UCONN had the ball when it mattered in the overtimes, but couldn't capitalize due to a breakdown in their offense.
- Storming the Floor notes that the most memorable moment might have actually been when Jim Boeheim, faced with a depleted unit, had to call on walk-on Justin Thomas in the sixth overtime.
- The Syracuse Post-Standard's Donna Ditota captures the post game locker room mood for the Orange, some too tired to talk or even tell time.
- USA Today's Mike Lopresti just wants to stand and applaud for these young athletes who grinded it out for four hours.
- ESPN's Dana O'Neil was asked to pull late night duty, blogging into the wee hours but pointing out that while Syracuse gets to move on, NYC is becoming UCONN's Waterloo.
- And staying with UCONN, The Hartford Courant's Mike Anthony says that this is a game we will revisit forever...as in every March when this classic is replayed for nostalgic purposes. Much to the chagrin of Husky fans.
