College basketball is about to trump all things search for a little while. March Madness started early this year in my book courtesy of a six overtime game between UConn and Syracuse in the Big East Tournament. Yeah, you heard me right, six overtimes. Check out the highlights. It’ pretty freakin’ amazing! Here are a few of the details from this epic battle that lasted until nearly 2am this morning:
- Eight players fouled out
- The game lasted 3 hours, 46 minutes
- They had a combined score of 244 points
- Seven overtimes is the record for college basketball (Cincinnati vs Bradley in 1981)
- The game was 1/10 of a second from being over at the end of regulation
Check out the highlights above or read the details on ESPN. It’s just the beginning of March Madness, baby! Man, I don’t see how Syracuse can have any legs left to play West Virginia tonight.
Oh yeah, I should also let you know that I’ll be “working from home” next Thursday and Friday from an undisclosed location in a secret bunker loaded with flatscreens. I love this time of year!
