Deadspin picked out audio of a frightened Cadougan telling his coach and trainer that he felt his spine snap, but he was able to walk off the court and soon returned to play.
Unfortunately Marquette couldn’t score against Syracuse’s zone, which legally must be described as “vaunted,” and the Orange rolled to a 55-39 victory. This strip-to-and-1 was the beginning of the end for the Eagles. Note Derrick Coleman cameo.
It was a bit of a grinding, dull game if you aren’t a Syracuse fan; the coolest thing that happened was probably this conversation.
