The 6 over-time classic is longest game ever played in the Big East Tournament and the second longest game in NCAA history.
A game that lasted nearly 4 hours saw 9 players foul out which allowed walk-on players to see game action. Syracuse G Johnny Flynn led all scorers with 34 while A.J. Price manged to put in 33pts. before fouling out in the 6th over-time.
The good news for the Orangemen is that they won the game, the bad news is they have to play tomorrow night in a Big East semi-final against West Virginia. I’m sure coach Bob Huggins enjoyed all 70 minutes of the Garden epic battle.
March Madness has officially arrived!
