A Great Day of Basketball

Just a Recap.

- Baylor upsets Kansas
- EDIT: VILLANOVA beats Marquette on a buzzer-beating lay-up that should've been the best Big East game of the night.
- Oklahoma upsets Oklahoma St
- West Virginia upsets Pitt.
- Lakers dominate San Antonio Spurs to clinch Pacific Division
- Westchester HS beats Fairfax HS 55-54 on a game-winning shot with 4 seconds left
- Inglewood HS and Marlborough HS (two teams left for dead in the CIF finals) advance to state regional final showdown.
- USC skates by Cal
- And finally…Syracuse beats UConn 127-117 in a game that went SIX OVERTIMES!!! They played a game and a half down in the great Madison Square Garden. All of those kids had heart but maybe none bigger than Syracuse's Jonny Flynn (34 pts, 11 dimes, played nearly all but three minutes) or UConn's AJ Price (33 pts, 10 dimes). Second-longest college bball game in history.

Did I mention that UConn tied the game with 1.1 seconds left in regulation and the game-winning 3-pointer was waved off?? OH MY GOODNESS!!!!

March 12, 2009 will go down in history for me as one of the greatest days of basketball I've seen. I can't wait for the NCAA Tournament to start Thursday cause I've already gone mad with basketball fever today!!
