This week's dangerously cold temperatures have temporarily suspended students from camping overnight in the so-called "Boheimburg." But thanks to the student fan club, Otto's Army, those who braved the freezing weather won't lose their place in line for the Feb. 1 game.

Brianna Butler and Brittney combined for 42 of SU's 113 points in a landslide win over Maryland-Eastern.

Only 3.2 seconds was left in the first half. Everyone’s gaze was fixated on the clock as Syracuse and Maryland-Eastern players tussled at the ball as yells of “we want tacos” echoed throughout the Dome. The Lady Hawks came up with the ball but time expired before they could get a shot off.

The buzzer sounded. No tacos. But it was only the halftime buzzer.

But 13 seconds into the second half, the Syracuse women’s basketball team made a layup to mark the earliest taco time in Carrier Dome history.
