Led by their wise-cracking, radio-show-hosting coach, Tom Brennan, and star forward Taylor Coppenrath, the No. 13 seed Catamounts knocked out fourth-seeded Syracuse, which was just two years removed from a national title. Senior guard T.J. Sorrentine swished a long three-pointer to boost Vermont's lead to four with just over a minute left in overtime. Syracuse's Gerry McNamara missed a desperation three with under a second remaining.
