Just Your Typical 127-117 Six OT Game...

So what can you do in three and forty-six minutes hours you ask? Well, you can watch seven straight episodes of Rachael Ray's 30 Minute Meals on Food Network with sixteen minutes to spare, or watch Sean "Puff Diddy run the New York Marathon for 23 miles, or if you were lucky enough, watch what will now be considered an ESPN Classic Instant Classic as Syracuse survived UConn, 127-117 in six overtimes.

No, that was not a typo. Let me repeat that for you. Syracuse 127, UConn 117 in the Big East Tournament quarterfinals at Madison Square Garden, the World's Mst Famous Arena in the USA's version of the middle of the fecking universe, New York City.

This even topped Villanova's 76-75 thriller over Marquette earlier in the day. How many college basketball games you know of actually have six overtimes? Only a 1981 game between Cincinnati and Bradley went one extra stanza longer.


  1. It is being reaired right now (2:20 PM) on ESPN Classec. They're in the 4th OT right now. And yes, I am watching it again.

  2. Best. College Basketball game. Ever.
