Recycling a talking point from 2016: Syracuse, not deserving of a bid on Selection Sunday, in midst of making a run a week later. The moment the field is set, you can hit the reset button on a disappointing season.
It’s as if every game in this tournament is coming down to the final 10 seconds. Except for the 16-1 & 13-4 upsets of course.
It appears the perfect position for Syracuse basketball is to be a double-digit seed that doesn’t even belong in NCAA tournament but once the Orange is in Syracuse is suddenly unbeatable (see: 2016)
Brainless play by Frank Howard. Brutal for a team that has the least depth in country - literally. 351st out of 351 in bench minutes.
Man behind @UMBCAthletics grew up 8 miles from campus. Parents were grads. He wanted to go far away - until SR in high school, when interned for UMBC. His 1st game, UMBC won on buzzer-beater, & went on to school’s 1st NCAA tourney. Zach Seidel was hooked.
