Tim Higgins will not work another Syracuse University basketball game

While clicking on the Syracuse Daily Links and reading Titus' Top 12 NCAA Power Rankings, I stumbled onto this story at the bottom:

The Retiring Referee of the Week

Tim Higgins — not to be confused with Tim Riggins, alcoholic linebacker for the Dillon Panthers — brought his long and illustrious referee career to an end last week when he officiated the final game at the Maui Invitational. Despite having officiated 10 Final Fours, Higgins's lasting legacy in the eyes of most Big East fans will be that he had it out for their favorite team. That's right — along with Ted Valentine, Higgins was one of only two referees in college basketball who could work a game and convince both teams' fans that they got screwed.

Anyway, with the career of one of the game's most recognizable officials coming to a close, it only seems fitting that we take a look back on perhaps the finest moment in his decorated career. Rutgers vs. St. John's, March 9, 2011
