6 OT Epic in the Garden

In the second longest Division I game in history, Syracuse defeated UConn in a heart-attack inducing three hours and 46 minutes. The game ended way past most fans' bedtime: 1:22 a.m. The showdown—which went six overtimes—almost ended with a three point buzz beater at the end of regulation, but after much deliberation, the referees waved the shot off. One player said he "could not feel his legs" after playing a total 67 minutes on the court. Now, Syracuse has to work up the energy to play West Virginia this evening. Sports writers are calling the game one for the ages.
