What are the odds of this happening? Syracuse alum Carmelo Anthony celebrated their elite 8 comeback win over Virginia on Snapchat saying: “They don’t want us to win!’ he yelled, echoing his comments after Friday’s Sweet 16 win. “Cuse nation is in full effect!”
Just a few minutes later, the New York Knicks were officially eliminated from the playoffs as the Indiana Pacers defeated the Houston Rockets.
