Back on February 1, the Syracuse Orange and Duke Blue Devils kicked off their new conference rivalry in spectacular fashion as they played probably the game of the year against one another, which ended in an overtime 91-89 victory for the top-ranked Orange.

It had all the emotion you could want from a memorable game. There were questionable foul calls, a dramatic buzzer-beating shot at the end of regulation and grind-it-out play all around. An instant classic, indeed.

Now, according to Cuse.com, you can own a piece of history as a small piece of the net is up for sale…for $75.

Yes, that little guy right there from the most memorable game of the season can be all yours for just about the cost of a good Playstation 4 game or ordering this year’s WrestleMania 30 event in high-definition.

Now, the official Syracuse site also says that the purchases will go toward funding the programs and help support student-athletes, which is a bit odd considering that Syracuse doesn’t seem to be in such financial straits that they have to sell a piece of nylon at $75 a pop to help them out, but to each their own, I guess.
