That. Was. AMAZING. Amazeballs, as the kids say.
I’ve spent the last several hours talking about this game and I’m still on a high. I want to do justice to the entire KFC Yum! Center experience, but that will have to wait until I get home from Kentucky. For now, let me just say that of all the SU games I have attended in person, this one may be the tops. Its main competition is Gerry McNamara’s last-second dagger at Georgetown in 2004. But wow. What a game, what a win, what an experience.
I didn’t actually rush the court, but I did head down close once things had settled down a bit. Unfortunately they’d already deleted the final score from the scoreboard. But here I am with Rick Pitino above my head and what I believe are Jim Boeheim’s in-laws over my right shoulder.
More to come Monday, plus maybe we’ll talk about the Cincinnati game. If I have any juice left. Whew.
