Syracuse women beat St. John’s on dramatic half-court buzzer beater

A. Isaac Senior Editor

This might be the mother of all buzzer beaters. With the score tied at 57, Syracuse freshman Brittney Sykes stole an inbounds pass and heaved a shot from behind half-court to win the game. As dramatic a finish as you’ll ever see.

The turnover was committed by Nadirah McKenith, Sykes’ old high school teammate. Ouch. I imagine the trash talk between the two is a bit one-sided today.
