Revenge never felt so sweet.
"Aww man, it feels good to get back at them. They sent us home way early and you know, it feels good to get them back. They beat us, so we gotta return the favor," said Tim Best.

"They're really a veteran team. Jimmy Boeheim is just doing a fabulous job as usual. Kids, the players are sticking together real tight. They're focused. they're really prepared and they're ready to go," said David Flaum.
From the littlest fans to those who have been die-hards for years, they're all routing for the Orange to end up in New Orleans.
S.U.'s next game is this Wednesday at Villanova.
