It's been a long time coming, but for the first time since its championship season of 2003, Syracuse finds itself just one win away from the Final Four.
Syracuse withstood a barrage of 14 three pointers, 8 of which came in the second half from Wisconsin, to beat the Badgers 64-63 in the Sweet 16 in Boston.
Scoop Jardine's two free throws on a one-and-one situation with around 2 minutes to go proved to be clutch, as the Badgers final posession turned in two shots, none of which hit the rim.
CJ Fair led the way with 15 points, Scoop followed up with 14 as Syracuse (34-2) now takes on the winner of Cincinnati and Ohio State.
The Orange split its 2 games with Cincinnati this season, winning without Fab Melo in the lineup back in January.
