View Full Version : Longest game?
Syracuse vs UConn, Big East tourney opener tonight. It's in the 6th overtime right now, and they arent done, although it looks like Syracuse is goona pull it out, which s amazing considering theyre the underdog. I was just trying to think of a game that was longer, and I can't think of any. Heck, in the regular season most sports would call it way before. But this has been a heck of a game, and if anyone has other epic battles theyve watched, post them here I guess?

Just for your reference.
NBA: longest NBA game ever ended after 6 overtime with the Indianapolis Olympians beating the Rochester Royals 75 - 73.
The NCAA record book (NCAA.org) lists a 7 OT game from 1981 (so pre-shot clock)... Cinncinnati (75) v. Bradley (73). [Division I]
In the shot clock era of the NBA 5OT is the longest http://www.nytimes.com/1989/11/10/sports/bucks-defeat-supersonics-in-5-overtimes.html?n=Top/Reference/Times%20Topics/Subjects/B/Basketball to see the article about it.
NEEDLESS TO SAY 6OT is INSANE!
