After watching that game, I had to check the boxscore to see if the stats backed up what I had just seen. Check out these numbers:
Syracuse shot 35% for the game, was 1 of 8 from three, got out rebounded 51-30 by Sparty, and Sparty had 24 more shots at the basket than Syracuse - 66 shots for Sparty, 42 for the Orange.
And incredibly - Syracuse won.
Sparty shot 21% from 3, jacking the ball 37 times and making 8. Not much better from 2 - overall shot 25% for the game. And Syracuse money on free throws - 24 of 31 as compared to 11-16 for Sparty.
Not sure I have ever seen a game like that one. And w Sparty playing in Detroit.
As Bob Ufer used to say - "I have never been so cotton picking happy!" See ya, Sparty. And Go BLUE!
