The Syracuse Orange are headed to the Final Four for the first time since 2003, and the folks in upstate New York are in full-on celebration mode.
The No. 4 Orange booked their trip to Atlanta with a 55-39 win over Big East rival No. 3 Marquette Saturday in Washington, D.C., as they held the Golden Eagles to just 22.6 percent shooting over the entire game.
When a team advances to college hoops' promised land, it could be hard to capture the feelings of a fan base. We'll do our best by taking a look at what they had to say over at Troy Nunes is an Absolute Magician.
First, Sean Keeley took to Twitter to voice his enthusiasm:
2. Boeheim Children, bad news is you're Disney World trip is postponed. Good news, you're going to see the exciting Atlanta Underground.— Sean Keeley (@NunesMagician) March 30, 2013
That's in reference to the Boeheim family's planned trip to Disney World if Syracuse did not make the Final Four.
10. Final Four, you guys. Final Four.— Sean Keeley (@NunesMagician) March 30, 2013
Oh my God, the t-shirts, you guys. THE T-SHIRTS TO COME...— Sean Keeley (@NunesMagician) March 30, 2013
Nothing like some championship t-shirts.
Jared E. Smith offered a bit more analysis for Syracuse fans to enjoy, and he also pointed out how fitting it was that the game that clinched a trip to Atlanta for the Orange came on the same court where they lost an embarrassing one to Georgetown to close the regular season.
That day seems so long ago, however, with Syracuse two wins away from a National Title and the Hoyas long gone from the NCAA Tournament.
