Back to Syracuse in the semifinals of the Big East Conference tournament after beating cross-town rival St. John's, 79-73.
Syracuse let young people do not talk to him in this contest, two Underclassman was probably the best day in the young careers. Sophomore guard Brandon Triche has 22 points and rookie center scored Melo Fab 12.
Both are a season high score of young men. Melo in the first, it seems that the hang of this college basketball thing at exactly the right time. Started a career high 10 points earlier in the 'Cuse last tournament game against DePaul.
This sets up what should be an entertaining matchup against the suddenly hot University of Connecticut Huskies. The Huskies advanced earlier in the day, as Kembo Walker buzzer beater capped the win over UConn in the third-place Pitt.
The last time UConn and Syracuse met in the Big East tournament was epic, six-overtime thriller in 2009, which ended in a 127-117 win over Syracuse.
