Syracuse hits buzzer-beater to stun Duke, strengthen NCAA Tournament case

New, comments

Senior guard John Gillon beat the buzzer to knock off Duke.

Syracuse’s NCAA Tournament hopes received a huge boost thanks to John Gillon’s buzzer-beater to stun Duke on Wednesday night. The senior guard took the ball the length of the floor in the final seconds at the Carrier Dome and banked in the game-winning shot to give the Orange a huge win.

Syracuse also hit a buzzer-beater earlier this month to defeat Clemson. This win could lock in ‘Cuse’s at-large bid. Massive shot.

Syracuse Final Four run coming before you know it.
