This Day in 'Cuse History - January 13th

What's the best way to celebrate Friday the 13th? It's hopping in the 'Cuse Time Machine and traveling back to January 13th 2003! Obviously, we need to start the time traveling during the greatest season in 'Cuse hoops history.

On this day freshmen sensations Carmelo Anthony and Gerry McNamara helped unranked Syracuse upset #11 Missouri 76-69 in front of 18,756 fans in the Dome. Sophomore Hakim Warrick finished with a team high 20 points to go with 10 rebounds. Craig Forth, aka Stat Sheet Stuffer, tallied 11 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 blocks, and 1 steal. Forth even added one of his patented monster dunks. Kueth Duany added 10 points while Josh Pace and Jeremy McNeil came off the bench to score a total of 5 points grab 6 boards combined.

The 'Cuse improved their record to 11-1 with this victory. They would continue to climb the polls on their way to the magical finish in New Orleans.

And on this night Billy Edelin was nowhere to be found....
