The Syracuse Warriors completed the improbable back-2-back championship run that many thought could not happen. After being the best team in the first half of the season, no one would have predicted the team slump that plagued the players in the second half. The rumblings from ownership were a little discerning. Namshub, Syracuse owner, was quoted in the local fishwrap, saying "In the revered history of this league I am currently working an historical collapse of unseen proportions." This was little over a week before his team clinched the #5 seed.
Someone famous, once said, "that is why they play the games"..... Nothing could be closer to the truth this year.
