Video: C.J. Fair’s Dunk vs. Georgetown In Overtime Was A Complete Game-Changer

C.J. Fair was the goat. He’d taken an ill-advised shot with Syracuse clinging to a two-point lead and then fouled Otto Porter to give up the game-tying free throws. Syracuse had coughed up a 12-point lead down the stretch, and Fair’s poor decision making was the proverbial straw the broke the camel’s back. Surely Georgetown would dominated the Orange in OT. But Fair had a short...

Cardinal Sin: Huge Syracuse Lead Disappears Under Louisville’s Frantic Press

Being up by 15 points is never a bad thing. Except maybe for Syracuse. Just ask Jim Boeheim: “It was probably the worst thing to happen to get up 15. If we hadn’t played well and we were up four or five, they probably wouldn’t have done that, but that’s what they had to do at that point to go after it, and that was exactly what I would have tried to do, and that’s what...

Take That Hoyas! Syracuse Knocks Off Georgetown, A New York Story

The final Syracuse-Georgetown clash in Big East Tournament history had to end like this. Drama at the end of regulation. Overtime thriller.

Remembrances of Future Pasts

There was a pretty great article on the world wide leader this week, which is odd because there I don’t see many of those on their site anymore and because it was an oral history. I can’t lie and say that I hate oral histories because I never read them but the reason I never read them is because the idea of reading an “oral history” feels like somebody took a garden weasel...
