UConn’s Upset Over Syracuse Means March Came Early This Year
It’s sad to think that Wednesday was possibly the last time that Big East college basketball rivals UConn and Syracuse might meet in the regular season. Syracuse is moving to the ACC next year while UConn will stay in the Big East so if they don’t meet again, they left their fans with something by which to remember the rivalry.
Huskies freshman Omar Calhoun (no relation to former UConn head coach Jim Calhoun) nailed a trio of three-pointers, including the go-ahead bomb to put Connecticut up for good halfway through the second half. UConn sophomore guard ryan Boatright led the Huskies with 17 points, providing a consistent complement to Calhoun’s big plays. The Orange came into the game ranked No. 6, but if this season of college basketball has proven anything, it’s that those rankings don’t mean a thing and we’re in for an extremely wild month of March.
These kinds of upsets are why America loves the NCAA tournament. It’s full of big plays, shocking moments and of course the upsets that leave fans burning their brackets but admiring the things they’ve witnessed. Although the Big East rivalry between UConn and Syracuse didn’t end on a buzzer-beater or any sort of unbelievable play, the fact the unranked team knocked off the top 10 squad was exactly the way it should have ended and it’s a perfect forecast to the insane second half of February and tournament we have to look forward to in March.
