The same Washington team coached by Mike Hopkins, a former Syracuse assistant coach, who implements an Orange-esque 2-3 zone.
Not even the Super Bowl.
"We don't feel like they have as much depth as we do", Massinburg said. He is without question the most dominant force in college basketball and not only should he be the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft, he should be the recipient of this year's Wooden Award.
Then, the tide roared back in ASU's favor.
To a 2K purist, those choices might appear far too easy. "It's seeing things as more of an opportunity like the people I meet, the connections I could have, just school and all".
UNC had 12 points off turnovers in the first half, allowing the Tar Heels to take control. "And fatigue is off, so nobody can stop me".
Both teams just seemed satisfied to take part in a classic rock fight as the second half grinded on.
Here's what's also true about Ayton: He's confident, yet not afraid to reveal weakness.
DID YOU KNOW?: This Arizona squad is the second team in Pac-12 history to win the regular-season and conference tournament titles in consecutive years. They want to get up and down the floor.
"He taught me some things to look outside of the box instead of just being a basketball player", Clark said. You know what I'm saying?
Limiting turnovers and getting back on defense will help to accomplish this.More news: Free agent ace Jake Arrieta, Phillies reach 3-yr deal
The Orange has a +4.5 rebounding edge per game this season.
He set his career high with 32 points in a win against UCLA in the Pac-12 semifinal and then tied it again the next day as the Wildcats dominated USC in the final.
The Wildcats' 7-1, 260-pound Pac-12 Player of the Year (and Freshman of the Year) will be the difference in this ballgame.
ESPN reported late last month that Arizona head men's basketball coach Sean Miller discussed paying a star recruit. "And if I do that, we'll be in tournaments like this quite a bit moving forward". I think Buffalo is going to do enough to cover tonight.
Yes, Ayton has gone off a lot this season. Syracuse would respond with five straight points, including a clutch three-pointer from Tyus Battle to give the Orange a three-point lead and control of momentum with 1:21 to play. In that one, Arizona State guard Remy Martin put up 20 points.
Even when things aren't going well, Ayton is still unsafe.
At the same time, Trier - who was suspended for the first 19 games last season after testing positive for a performance-enhancing substance that he maintained he ingested unknowingly - was dealing with another suspension.
He does it by quickly soaking up experience and instruction wherever it comes from.
"It was a great effort, great physical effort and that's every game we played this year", Boeheim said.
"I wouldn't trade him for any of those three". Of course you don't.
Ayton said he "always" picks up new moves he sees in 2K and tries them out on the court. That hypothetical is, more or less, Ayton's reality.
