After 40 years of coaching, Connecticut's basketball legend decides to hang it up after 873 wins and three national championships.

After watching Notre Dame officially announce its move to the ACC, the Big East has been dealt another blow. Jim Calhoun, head coach of the UConn Huskies, is set to retire today.

Syracuse is hoping to defeat Connecticut for the second time this season – and preferably in less than six overtime periods – when they take on the Huskies in the Big East tournament semifinals Friday.

Two years ago, Syracuse and UConn played one of the greatest games in NCAA history. The epic six-overtime marathon lasted nearly four hours and carried over into the early hours of the morning. Friday, the Orange will face the Huskies in the Big East tournament once again.

Syracuse avoided the first-ever five game losing streak in the Jim Boeheim era with a 66-58 road victory Wednesday night over the No. 7 Connecticut Huskies.

In the first half it was a seemingly familiar story for the Syracuse men’s basketball team, as SU struggled with poor defense and some bad shots. The Orange missed their first six shots, committed four fouls and turned the ball over three times before finally scoring their first points of the night. Syracuse rebounded though, and went on to grab its first win at Connecticut since 1997, 66-58.
