VIDEO: Rakeem Christmas’ game-changing block
In front of a large crowd in the Carrier Dome, with just 15-seconds remaining and being down by a point, it almost seemed as though Duke would pull off the victory after Duke’s Rodney Hoods’ dunk attempt. But, alas, the Orange were saved thanks to forward Rakeem Christmas’ game-changing block……..or was it a foul?
Officials ruled the play a clean block, which led to Duke being forced to foul. In overtime, the Orange picked up a 91-89 victory after Duke’s Quinn Cook failed to capitalize and tie or win the game for the Blue Devils as time expired. As a result of their victory, the No. 2 ranked Syracuse Orange remain undefeated with a record of 21-0.
