The Syracuse Orange had a chance to tie things up in the closing seconds of their ACC tournament game against the NC State Wolfpack.

Actually, make that six chances.

With 24.6 seconds left, Syracuse had a missed layup, a failed put-back dunk and four out-of-control three-point attempts.  

The Orange went on to lose 66-63, giving them five losses in their last seven games.

Only one song was appropriate.
