SYRACUSE, NY – NOVEMBER 8: General view of Syracuse Orange basketball game against Cornell Big Red on November 8, 2013 at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, New York. (Photo by Brett Carlsen/Getty Images)The 2014-15 Syracuse basketball team has seen a number of games due to poor late-game execution this season, leaving it squarely on the bubble with Selection Sunday just 39 days away. A loss to lowly Virginia Tech at the Carrier Dome could have been disastrous to SU’s tournament hopes, but instead, the Orange flipped the script on the Hokies tonight.With 6:33 left in the game, a Justin Bibbs jumped gave Virginia Tech a 63-50 lead. After that play, Syracuse outscored Virginia Tech 22-7 to end the game, with Michael Gbinije scoring seven points in that stretch. Gbinije, who has struggled from the free throw line all season (46.7%), hit both shots from the line to tie the game at 70 with 19 seconds left. After Trevor Cooney baited Tech into a turnover on the ensuing inbound, Gbinije hit a floater to give SU a two point lead, leaving just 0.1 seconds on the clock. At 15-7, with one of the hardest stretches of games in the country approaching, Syracuse needs to finish strong to go dancing this March, but the Orange will live to fight another day after Gbinije’s shot.[Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician]

This was a very challenging year for Twitter, which saw itself as the subject of a potential major acquisition before those talks fell apart.

Roger Espinoza and Konrad Warzycha knew they’d be competing with, and against, high-profile athletes when they left the Ohio State men’s soccer team to pursue Major League Soccer careers. But, teaming with Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco never crossed their minds. Ochocinco, a six-time NFL Pro Bowl selection and avid soccer fan, recently concluded a four-day trial with MLS club Sporting Kansas City, which began March 23. Espinoza, a defender on Sporting KC’s squad, said he enjoyed training with the NFL superstar. “I spoke to (Ochocinco) a little bit, and he was happy to be here,” Espinoza said. “He’s a world-class athlete.” Espinoza, who helped to lead OSU to the 2007 NCAA College Cup championship game his senior season, said he expected Ochocinco’s trial with Sporting KC to be a “media thing.” Ochocinco’s attitude convinced Espinoza otherwise. “He’s not just here for media stuff,” Espinoza said. “He actually wanted to be here. He talks to a lot of the guys. He wants to play. … He knows a little bit about soccer.” Warzycha, a rookie midfielder on Sporting KC’s roster, never got a chance to meet or train with Ochocinco. After completing his final season as a Buckeye in November 2010 and signing a contract with Sporting KC on March 3, knee surgery forced Warzycha to return to Columbus for rehab. Warzycha said that missing the opportunity to meet Ochocinco was “definitely a disappointment.” “When I heard (Ochocinco) was coming,” Warzycha said, “I thought maybe I could do my rehab back in Kansas City.” To find out whether Ochocinco was offered an MLS contract, check out Monday’s edition of The Lantern.
