Syracuse Hoops Loses Exhibition Game To ... The LeMoyne Dolphins? Huh?

Yes, you read that headline right. Playing in an exhibition game at the Carrier Dome, the mighty Syracuse Orangemen -- one of the elite college basketball programs in the country each and every year -- lost 82-79 to the not-as-equally mighty LeMoyne Dolphins. Yes, the LeMoyne Dolphins. I promise this is not a joke:

Syracuse trailed by five points with less than a minute remaining, but rallied to take a 79-78 lead on Wes Johnson's 3-point shot with 17 seconds left.

LeMoyne's Christopher Johnson drained a 3-point shot with 8 seconds remaining to put the Dolphins ahead 81-79.

Wes Johnson, who finished with 34 points, had one last 3-point attempt, but the shot drew iron and bounced away.

Get Jim Boeheim some antacids and some muscle relaxers and maybe some antidepressants, because some combination of the three is the Orange's only hope of not having the runningest practices of all-time for the rest of the week. Eesh.
