On Selection Sunday, Syracuse was seen as one of only a handful of teams with a legitimate shot of winning the college basketball national championship. After Saturday night, that list grew even smaller.
Ohio State took the floor in Boston with just a tad more intensity and in the end, the Buckeyes were able to overcome the Fab Melo-less Orange en route to a 77-70 victory.
The Buckeyes now head to the final four, where earlier in the day Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinals had already punched their ticket.
Down eight at the half, Pitino made some key adjustments and relied heavily on some of his more experienced players to turn the game around and take down his former mentee Billy Donovan and the Florida Gators.
Both games were exciting and there's expected to be even more excitement in store on Sunday.
