2003 NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP: No. 3 Syracuse 81, No. 2 Kansas 78
The Orange jumped to a 53-42 lead at the half and led 76-64 with less than five minutes remaining. Nick Collison and Kirk Hinrich then each drained threes for the Jayhawks, cutting the deficit to 76-70. Two minutes later, after a Michael Lee layup, Kansas was down three, 80-77. Syracuse had a chance to put it away with a minute left, but Hakim Warrick missed a free throw, giving Kansas the ball down 81-78. A late desperation three was off the mark, though, and the Orange escaped with the win and the national title. | (Credit: AP)
