Because of traffic and parking we usually get to the stadium an hour early. It's always fun to see the seats fill up.
The calm before the storm : )
Here they were practicing at half time.
Going into this game, as Syracuse is number 3 in the league, we were definitely the underdog.
With 2 minutes left the Syracuse fans behind us were shouting, "the games over...call it now." With 18 seconds left we were still down by three points. Arcidiacono made that three point shot with seconds to spare. The game definately wasn't over, and we went to over time.
The atmosphere in the arena was palpable, and this is why I love going to games. The excitement of the fans, especially the students.
When we won, 75-71 in overtime the crowd went nuts. The students had been preparing to rush the court for a few minutes leading up to the win.
I guess these pictures really speak for themselves. It was an amazing game!!! The best part was when we were leaving, the woman sitting next to me turns around and shouted, "NOW the game is over." The syracuse fans didn't know what to say. Go Nova!!!!!
