Been many years for me but after Wednesday's disaster starting thinking about where that loss ranks in the greatest losses that I have lived through:
1. 1973 Barnes get hurts, lose to Memphis St. after dominating the game with him in the lineup.
2. Bill Bradley led Princeton team rips us in the NCAAs with Walker, Riordan, Westbrook.
3. Ohio St comes from behind in regulation led by Jimmy Jackson to beat Eric Murdock/Rick Barnes in the first round of the NCAAs.
4. Don't remember many details, but regular season game at the then Civic Center, Walter Berry hits game winner after a long base line pass. St. John's was highly ranked.
5. Maris Laksa misses a 3 to tie Syracuse in the first round of the BET. Syracuse had blitzed us and we came roaring back only to fall a 3 short.
6. Rick Barnes Texas return game. We all know what happened there.
7. Point guard from Syracuse, can't recall his name, hits a half court shot at the buzzer.
Those are the immediate ones that come to mind for me. Will add as I think of more.
