Not surprisingly, the game between the Duke Blue Devils and the Syracuse Orange is turning into an instant classic right before our very eyes, and the end of regulation provided the most excitement.

With Duke down three points and seemingly ready to take the loss on the road, Rasheed Sulaimon had the ball in his hands with time winding down, and lofted this prayer shot that forced the game into overtime.

Like two heavyweight boxers, these two have been battling each other back and forth all night, trading punches throughout the evening.

A win here in this one would keep the Orange undefeated and give them their best start in the history of the program, but Duke is doing everything in their power to make sure that this doesn’t happen.

This shot by Sulaimon was just a little icing on the cake for what has been quite possibly the best game so far of the college basketball season, and it can only get better in the overtime period.
