I live a short drive away from Syracuse and I watched this game. It was an absolute epic.

It should have ended with a last second 3 pointer by Syracuse's Eric Devendorf but after review it was ruled he still had a finger on the ball while shooting as time expired. So overtime we went.

Some overtimes ended with a last second shot to tie it. Others ended with a last second shot just missing to send it into another overtime.

Either way, an absolute classic between two great rivals. UConn was ranked #1 heading into the game and it was in the Big East tournament. So it had double the meaning.

Syracuse went into overtime the very next night against West Virginia, as well!
