Gerry McNamara shares Final Four feelings with current team

'03 National Champion Gerry McNamara shares feelings with current SU players

SU assistant coach and former player Gerry McNamara knows exactly how the 2013 Orange is feeling heading to the Final Four, as the '03 National Champion was in the same postion just 10 years ago.

Behind McNamara and Carmelo Anthony, the 2003 Orange defeat Kansas in the National Championship in New Orleans.

"You dream about it, you work toward it, you can't describe the feeling," McNamara, who was just a freshman when he won the title, says. "It's elation, emotion, there's so many different things that go through your mind."

East Region Most Outstanding Player Michael Carter-Williams says he has always looked up to McNamara and hopes to follow in his footsteps to the National Title.

The Orange plays Michigan in Atlanta on Saturday with tip off coming around 8:50 p.m.
