I get into the arena and Syracuse is up four. For the final two minutes call after call went against UNCA. A cop standing in the tunnel even called it robbery. Syracuse won, but even their fans weren’t cheering. Everyone there knew the 16 seed was the better team!
I pull into the media parking lot and the attendant said my name wasn’t on the list. After giving a stunned look and asking where to go, he snuck me in for my last $20. (Whoever was the SID responsible for not communicating parking should be fired)!
Tipping off in the 3 pm hour was 1 seed Syracuse vs 16 UNC Asheville. UNC Asheville held a modest halftime lead, so my goal at this point was to get to the arena to catch history.
In 2012, I covered OSU’s first two rounds being played in Pittsburgh. OSU played the latest game possible on Thursday. So I didn’t leave Columbus until after 2.
Congrats to UMBC tonight. We knew this day would come. I want to share my 16 vs 1 story from my sports writing days.
