For those of you who missed it — and there were many — the UCONN/Syracuse war of attrition mercifully ended at 1:22 a.m. after six overtimes, 244 points, and, most likely, plenty of pairs of ruined pants. I admit, I was asleep. But I woke up this morning with two text messages from Syracuse alum and Deadspin paint boy Jim Cooke:
At 12:49 a.m: "FIVE?!"
At 1:25 a.m.: "Ok. That was insane."
Insane. Classic. Neverending. Greatest. Plenty of adjectives. ButJim Boeheim was at a complete loss for words:
Who knows if Syracuse will have anything left when they take on West Virginia tonight? This is why the NCAA should take crystal meth off their banned substance list.
