I know this has absolutely nothing to do with anime, but I just got done watching (on the teevee) my alma mater, Syracuse, beat #4 Connecticut 127-117 in six overtimes. Only 3 other games in the history of NCAA basketball have ever gone that long – two six overtime games in the 1950s and one seven overtime game in 1981.
And just to give some perspective: Syracuse didn’t lead in any of the first five overtimes. It’s almost unfathomable how a team could push a game to six overtimes without ever leading in any of them except the last. Also, eight players fouled out – four on each team – with Syracuse having to use 2 players who combined probably haven’t played a full game worth of minutes for the whole season.
And Syracuse played last night (and has to play again tomorrow in the Big East semifinals). It was truly epic.
