Louisville Goes On Incredible Run, Beats Syracuse To Claim Second Straight Big East Tournament Title

I don't know what just happened. I mean, I watched it, but I don't know what just happened.

We've seen some improbable things over the past few years, but Louisville turning a 16-point second half deficit into a 17-point win...in the Garden...against Syracuse...for the last Big East championship...that ranks right up there at the top.

Where do you take this post from there? Peyton Siva became the first back-to-back Big East Tournament MVP since Patrick Ewing, Kevin Ware - the player who was suspended indefinitely just two months ago - stepped up larger than anyone could have ever imagined, and then there was Montrezl Harrell impregnating the entire state of New York.

There were a thousand memorable moments to take away from this game, but the one I'll remember above all others is the shot of the players on the bench encouraging Harrell after he missed a free-throw with the team down 11 early in the second half. It epitomizes what this group is about and how they were able to pull something off like what we saw tonight.

There's plenty more to talk about, but for now, this is one that should be celebrated for a little while.

Three down, six to go.
