We have lost our first #1 seed. Brian Fair had 19 points, Ray Allen 16 and Donnie Marshall 16 to lead the 8 seed 1995 UConn Huskies to a major upset over the 1 seed 2003 Syracuse Orange in round two action. The Huskies had a two point lead at the half and held on for the entire second half for a close 2 point win. Gerry McNamara led the Orange with 17 and Carmelo Anthony had 16 points and 10 rebounds. The game was an even match with the Huskies going 18-20 from the free throw line.
