Summary

"There are games that stand the test of time - performances that years, even decades later bring a smile or in some cases even a grimace, to a fan's face. They are indelible moments that, when strung together, give you a sense of a college's history. In Slices of Orange, Sal Maiorana and Scott Pitoniak recapture the heroics of running back Jim Brown's 43-point performance against Colgate at old Archbold Stadium; the pain of Keith Smart's jumper that denied Syracuse a national title in 1987; and the joy of Carmelo Anthony's levitation act in the 2003 NCAA basketball championship game. They tell of the fierce SU-Georgetown basketball rivalry - and John Thompson's incendiary comment that ignited it - and how the Gait brothers, Paul and Gary, revolutionized the game of lacrosse and laid the foundation for a college sports dynasty."--BOOK JACKET.
