Hoops: Six overtimes, seriously

The best way to put Syracuse's six-overtime win over UConn last night is that the No. 2 team in the NCAA, Pittsburgh, lost earlier in the night. Almost no one noticed.

Toronto's Andy Rautins had no small part, hitting a buzzer-beating, contested three to force the fourth overtime and hitting another to put the 'Cuse ahead to stay in the sixth.

The greatest game ever played (according to the weird guy at the end of the clip, language NSFW)? Not likely. This wasn't N.C. State over Maryland in 1974. But it was a hell of a game.

Oh baby for sure!

The craziest part was that Syracuse's free-throw shooting kept them in the game.

Anyone who remembers 1987 is feeling smothered by irony.
