Red Line Upsets

Cleveland State 72, at Syracuse 69 -- Bucknell. Wichita State and Drexel. UMass and Rhode Island. Add the Vikings to the long and growing list of teams that have karmically punished the Orange's strategy of not leaving town until the Big East drags them kicking and screaming out of the state of New York. You can see the magic moment from your very own courtside seat, complete with Jim Boeheim leaving the court in shame. And while the win pumped up the Horizon's burgeoning two-bid hopes, consider that with the exception of breakthrough Bucknell, the other four Carrier Dome winners made the NIT (with which Syracuse is familiar lately) instead of the NCAA. If Cleveland State falls short, it's time to start talking curse.
