Ready For March Madness Yet?

Syracuse beat UConn tonight 127-117 in SIX OVERTIMES (!) to advance to the semis in the Big East tournament.

Remarkably the Orange never led in any of the overtimes until the final one. Jeez.

The game lasted almost four hours, or to put it another way, about as long as an average West Coast baseball game (anybody who's had to wait for a 10 PM Giants/Padres game to end knows what I'm talking about).

It's the longest game in Big East history and the second longest Division I game ever.

Imagine if this happened in the actual tournament? How would you top that?

And Syracuse has to play tomorrow/later tonight!

College basketball! THIS is March Madness!
