Uconn isnt the same team, but definitely still has a shot, along with a handful of other teams. There clearly isnt a dominating team this season that runs over opponents, UNC benefits from Big East teams killing eachother and they lost to some weak teams in the ACC. I'm not buying into them, they got the top spot by default.
We lost to Cleveland St. on a 60 foot buzzer beater. And Cleveland St. is in the NCAA Tournament. We also beat #3 Memphis, # 10 Kansas, and #21 Marquette away from home. Now add beating #4 Connecticut away from home in one of the greatest games in NCAA history, and I'm pretty sure I can say whatever I want.

Memphis is the "Boise State" of NCAA basketball. They are in such a bad conference, they won't even get a #1 seed despite their national ranking. UConn also beat Marquette away from home WITHOUT Dyson, so I don't know what you are bragging about. UConn is still the better team.
I am bragging because we have beaten top 10 teams away from home, exactly the type of games we would be playing in the NCAA Tournament. Not to mention we play in the Big East, the toughest conference in college basketball. Any team can win on any given day, see DePaul. In the words of Bob Huggins, "It is easier to get to the Final Four than win the Big East Tournament."
I am originally from near Syracuse, and when I worked in the NY went to every big east tourny for 12 years. My buddy lives next door to Boeheim, That was the best game I have ever seen on both teams parts. Although U Conn did blow some good chances. I am a little worried about cuse tonite but maybe the mo will carry them.
Doesn't really matter if Syracuse wins tonight or not, I wouldn't expect them to playing their fourth game in 3 days. Either way, the country is now aware that they are a true threat to go directly to the Final Four.

You honestly believe that??? You would be hard-pressed to find anyone who thinks that Syracuse would make it into the Final Four ahead of the likes of Oklahoma, Loiusville, Pittsburgh, Connecticut, N. Carolina, Memphis, Michigan State.....the list goes on and on.
