Coach Quentin Hillsman and the SU Womens Basketball team made a statement to the ACC tonight.
Unranked, and with a 4-3 conference record, Syracuse went on the road to Chapel Hill, North Carolina and upset the 6th ranked Tar Heels on their home floor.
What's more, Carolina led by 18 points in the first half before SU closed the halftime deficit to 14.
In the second half however, Syracuse outscored UNC 46-27 to win 78-73, it's the highest ranked team Syracuse has ever defeated
The Orange was paced by its stars Briana Butler (22 points) and Brittney Sykes (17 points)
Syracuse is now 16-5 this season and 5-3 in ACC play.
The win will absolutely bolster Syracuse's NCAA Tournament resume, but for now, Coach "Q" and the Orange can celebrate in the Tar Heel State.
