The Orange lost those previous two semifinals, losing to Northwestern in 2008 and Maryland in 2010, both of whom went on to win the National Title. This year might be their best chance yet to make it to the title game, considering they've already beaten Florida once before and they know what it's like to play on the big stage of the Final Four. They've never beaten a No. 1 seed before but they've got a good shot on Friday.
So, considering the men's team is already home for the holidays and the women's team is playing for it's first national title in the comfy confines of New York, I ask...are you going?
If so, share the info below. Where's the pregame? Where's the post-game celebration? What is everyone painting on their bodies?
The game will be televised on ESPN3.com, so there won't be much of a gamewatch going on. Your only other options for partaking are to listen in on WJPZ 89.1FM in Syracuse or listen to the game on Orange All-Access.
In other words, get off your butt and go cheer on the Orange...
