And the most memorable play in that game was Hakim Warrick’s game-saving block of Michael Lee’s 3-point shot. That block spawned conversation about the greatest plays in Syracuse basketball history. The shots, the dunks, the passes and the blocks that stand out above all the rest.

It’s only the second time he’s denied a gun sale out of concern for public safety, he said. In the other case, a year ago, a local man wanted a gun repair and seemed suspicious, Laubscher said.
