6 OT’s…WOW

Mar. 13, 2009, 1:38 AM

I really cannot say I have ever witnessed a basketball game quite like the one that occurred tonight at the Big East Tournament in New York. Connecticut and Syracuse battled into the early hours of Friday morning, playing six…yes six overtimes.

‘Cuse never led at any point of the first five overtimes. It was tied at 110 apiece after 5 OT’s. In the sixth, The Orange were able to outscore the Huskies 17-7 and win the game 127-117.

The game had everything. It just seemed like every overtime was destined to have the teams tied when the clock it triple zeros. What a game for two hall of fame coaches, Jim Calhoun and Jim Boeheim.

As for the Big East Tournament, Syracuse advances to the Semi-Finals and will play West Virginia Friday night. West Virginia has to have the early edge considering how tired the Syracuse players must be.

I will blog more on the impact of this game later today.
