Leave the Chandeliers, CJ Fair.

Lots of milestones at the Carrier Dome last night in Syracuse's 71-63 win over Pittsburgh. First off, Cuse goes to 20-0 for the first time in school history, and we now have the t-shirts to prove it. Jim Boeheim ties Adolph Rupp on the all-time wins list with 876, and is only four games away from passing Dean Smith for third place overall.

Also, everyone's favorite broadcasting trio was in the building for Big Monday- Sean McDonough, Bill Raftery and Jay Bilas. As always, Raftery was a treat, especially on this monster dunk from CJ Fair.


For those of you scoring at home, that was a "Bring it all....leave the chandeliers, big fella!" from Raftery, just after a few oohs and ahhs from Raftery and McDonough. Don't forget about the "fair play" and "totally unfair" wordplays by Bilas and Raftery...dad's across the country approve.

This dunk reminded us of Fair's ability to get up, including this dunk on Cornell from last season.

Fair still has some ways to go to get to Hakim Warrick-esque dunking prowess. While the "leave the chaneliers, big fella" was a high compliment from Raftery, it still doesn't beat "bring your lunch...."
