Crowning a Champion

There it is folks. Syracuse has finished off a successful 3-game road trip with wins over Rutgers at the RAC, barely digging out a victory over WVU, and just minutes ago pulled away to put down the Irish of Notre Dame.

Now it's official. This team will be the Champions of the Big East, and will carry their number 1 ranking through the Buffalo bracket  straight to the Championship game where they'll bring home the crown.

The bigs showed up, the points led the way, and the stars shown in the most crucial swing of the season. Now their poised and ready to rip through the rest of the Beasts in the East.

Thank you Pitt Panthers for beating up on the Cuse and teaching them toughness.

The champs will march in Syracuse come spring
