I will never forget Devendorf leaping on top of that table, and so many other moments from this game.
“I’ve been blessed to do a lot of memorable games in a number of sports and that one’s at the top of the list,” ESPN broadcaster Sean McDonough said. “Everything about it made for an epic event. Any two teams playing in six overtimes would’ve been remarkable, but for it to be Syracuse and UConn, with the combined success of those two programs and their Hall of Fame coaches, it was just history in the making.”
History almost never happened. Syracuse’s Eric Devendorf appeared to hit a game-winning 3-pointer at the end of regulation. But replays showed the ball still on Devendorf’s finger tips as the clock hit zero.
