What a match and what a finish was seen at Carrier Dome.

The #Syracuse Orange have defeated the #Duke Blue Devils in an epic match on Wednesday at Carrier Dome, New York. After being down to Duke under a minute remaining in the match, Syracuse had to figure out the way to end on the winning side. Thankfully to #John Gillon, Syracuse did exactly that.

John Gillon of Syracuse drove to the basket and tied the game at 75 apiece with 38 seconds remaining.

Duke then had the possession to take the lead but failed to do so. What happened next will forever be remembered by Syracuse Orange senior Gillon. The 22-year-old took the ball in his hands with a couple of seconds remaining on the clock and banked a three-pointer using the backboard. It was a crazy game ending and a memorable one for sure.
