Syracuse Loses Exhibition Game to Complete Lousiest Day
Now the basketball team drops an exhibition game to a Division II school, 82-79. This was not just losing to a D-II program, like Michigan State and Ohio State both did two years ago. That's embarrassing enough. This was losing to the Le Moyne Dolphins, a D-II school located right in Syracuse. It really doesn't get any more humiliating than that. Bragging rights in town for the year.
Syracuse let Le Moyne shoot nearly 48 percent in the game. You can't really break this game down in a blog post. It is a major conference Division I program with top national talent losing to a D-II program. Words fail.
Best tweet of the night goes to RJ Mosley for wondering "[S]cale of 1 to 10 how scared is a student reporter to ask a question" of Jim Boeheim. I'll agree with Troy Nunes is an Absolute Magician and say 101.
