Bo Garrett is currently a producer at ESPN where he has produced some of the hallmark moments in recent Big East Tournament history. Garrett was on hand for Syracuse’s six overtime victory over Connecticut in 2009, as well as Gerry McNamara’s run in the 2006 tournament as Syracuse captured the Big East championship. He recently spoke to me about his experiences as an ESPN producer.
Can we have a moratorium on the debate over whether Syracuse or St. John’s is “New York’s College Team?” At this point there is no debate. The crowd on Thursday afternoon might have been split 50/50 but the Redstorm faithful were tentative. They know they don’t own the Garden but were just renting it from the Orange.
