TALK OF THE TOWN 2/13: ALL HAIL TO THE ORANGE: #1’CUSE WINS ON HALF COURT BUZZER-BEATER

By

February 14, 2014

1 Syracuse 23-0 at 25 Pittsburgh 20-4

Let’s start, tied at 14 but Pitt’s James Robinson drains a 3 and the Panthers take the lead! Then Lamar Patterson shoots a 3…good! Pitt up 7! Patterson then swishes an NBA 3 and Pitt is up 9! Cuse started to come back, closing the lead to 2 but Patterson hit another three, so back to the drawing board for cuse, and it worked! Cuse down  3 and the Orange’s Trevor Cooney hits a 3 from the corner to tie it! But then Patterson passes it down low to Talib Zanna who lays it on the glass for the score! Pitt up six with 94 seconds left now but Cuse won’t go away, CJ Fair drains a 3 for the Orange and Syracuse is back in this thing! Then Fair hits a deep two to cut it to 1! Then the freshman Tyler Ennis of Syracuse is fouled, he makes both free throws, Syracuse takes the lead! Then with 4.4 seconds left Pittsburgh’s Talib Zana is fouled, Zana hits both of the freebies! So Syracuse with 4.4 seconds to win and Tyler Ennis the freshman gets his number called he jacks up the near half-court shot…SWISH! SYRACUSE STAYS UNBEATEN! #1 CUSE WINS ON A MIRACLE! OH MY GOD! CAN THEY BE BEAT?
