    Did anybody else watch this last night? I started watching it after the news and figured I'd stay up a little longer to see the end. 6 over times later Syracuse wins the game. It was 12:30 A.M. before I got to bed.:confused:

    What a great game to watch. The guys were wore out at the second O.T. and they had to just keep gutting it out.

    Syracues had a great little guard that reminded me a little bit of Tinsley. Looked for Wes Johnson, but didn't see him.

    Also a fun USC and Stanford game. Really enjoy watching Tim Floyd coached teams.

    I love March Madness.:yes:

    I told myself during the 4th OT that if it went to 5, I was going to bed. When it went to 5, I told myself that I was going to turn the TV off at midnight. When it went to 6, I said "**** it, I've all ready watched it this long, may as well watch it until the end."

    Whats weird about games like that is when you look back on it and think that if any one thing had or hadn't happened in regulation, that none of the OT's would have happened. Missed free throw, silly foul, etc..

    I started watching with three minutes left in regulation. We were planning on leaving for the bar in a few minutes but ended up watching all the OTs and not making it to the bar until 12:30 or a little after.

    Ditto for me...great game. And I love the trio of McDonough, Bilas, and Raftery...absolutely great.

    They always allude to Raftery's boozing...I would love to party with him!

    One of our mechanics told me about it while we were working, and we both wanted to drop what we were doing to go watch it online. Too bad the whole job thing "got in the way."

    I watched the whole game and it was a great game all the way through. I usually don't like Big East basketball but this one was a classic. I don't know how Syracuse is going to have anything left in the tank for tonight after playing that many minutes last night.

    I'll be impressed with Syracuse if they can keep it within 10 points of WVU today. Can you imagine how tired they are!?

    I loved every bit of that game (minus Devendorf).

    Can't say that these guys don't care about tournaments any more.

    I tuned in at 10:30 and watched to the end at 12:30. That team had guts. Loved the walk on who grabbed his first rebound of the season who had played 14 minutes all year. Lots of 20/10 efforts by each teams. Instant classic. Pogo stick Harris could not even hold onto the dunk shots at the end.

    I think it's the 4th OT when Syracuse puts the walk-on guy in, probably subbing for Devendorf after he fouled out.

    Anyway, when he comes in, you'll see UConn crawling up the court with the ball, looking exhausted. You'll see Syracuse past halfcourt, not wanting to press, and waiting before getting into a defensive stance.

    Then you'll see the walk-on doing jumping jacks on the court, trying to get warmed up.
