Kevin Wall: For Basketball, I'll say it's a Brandon Triche 3 in the Elite 8 game against Ohio State in Boston. SU was down 1 w/ 6 minutes to go and Triche got a great look at a 3 that was right on-line, but just didn't go down. The pro-SU crowd was ready to erupt and taking the lead there might have been enough to push the Orange to the win and lead to consecutive Final Four appearances. I think the loss to Butler is more of "What Might Have Been" because that team was probably looking at a better chance of winning it all, but I don't know if Arinze's injury counts as a single #whatif play.
James Szuba: For basketball it would definitely have to be the last play of the game in the 2013 Final Four. I wish Southerland would have came off the screen and buried a three to send it into overtime. OT would have been shaky for us with freshman Cooney at point with probably Southerland sliding up to the two guard and Grant and Fair on the wings with Triche and MCW fouled out. Southerland had played the top of the zone before. You never know.
Andrew Pregler: I'm going to go earlier in the game to when Brandon Triche is driving the ball with Cuse down two and just around 20 seconds left on the clock. Triche, playing with his fourth foul makes some contact and is charged with a charge. It was a block. A close call, but clearly a block and the end result is no Triche and Michigan shooting. While Triche was anything but automatic, it still would have been huge to possibly tie that game up. It would have set up the great SU 2-3 zone of that season to get one more stop and either force OT or set up one heckuva a hail mary. Even with how burned Syracuse was to that point, this play essentially erased whatever momentum the Orange had and sealed a Michigan win.
What do you think Orange Nation? What basketball play do you want undone?
