Syracuse Defeats UCONN in Ridiculous 6 OT Thriller (UNREAL)

I am so pissed at myself for not watching the Syracuse vs. UCONN game last night.  I was tired as hell and went to bed at like 10 PM like a wuss and forgot to click over to ESPN for the Big East Tournament before I fell asleep.  Man, was that a mistake.  The game went to 6 Overtimes (!!!) and had to have been one of the best college games in recent memory (at least based on the highlights).Check out the ESPN SportsCenter video highlights above or you can watch a full replay tonight on ESPN Classic or at

That was definitely a sick game and hopefully a sign of more things to come as the NCAA Tournament rapidly approaches.  I have been watching Syracuse over the past few weeks and they are hitting their stride at the perfect time.  They might lose tonight because they are so drained from last night's ridiculous game but look out for them in the tournament.  I have a funny feeling they could make it to the Elite 8 and surprise some higher ranked teams if they match up against them along the way.

UCONN on the other hand is starting to look like a high ranked team that will flame out early.  I could be completely wrong but I think they will be a flop in the tourney.  They have lost a few games in the past weeks and are starting to look like they are no longer a true #1 seed, in my opinion.  With their star player Jerome Dyson out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, they are slowly starting to unravel.  They may still end up getting the #1 seed from the tourney committee but it should probably be Louisville if they win the Big East Tournament.  I would be on the lookout for Louisville as well.  Those dudes are looking great lately and could easily end up in the Final Four if everything falls into place.  I can't wait to start filling out the brackets on Monday morning!!!
