Out of the blue — or make that orange — Syracuse finds itself in the best of all places — the men’s and women’s Final Four.
The feat has been accomplished by only eight other schools, most recently by UConn in 2014 when Kevin Ollie’s men and Geno Auriemma’s women won titles. Both teams of Huskies also won national championships in 2004, the only other time that’s happened.
In all, UConn has placed both its teams in the Final Four four times. Syracuse is happy just to join the party because no one saw this coming.
