There are games that stand the test of time - performances that years, even decades later bring a smile or in some cases a grimace, to a fans face. They are indelible moments that, when strung together, give you a sense of a colleges history. In Slices of Orange, Sal Maiorana and Scott Pitoniak recapture the heroics of running back Jim Browns 43-point performance against Colgate at old Archbold Stadium- the pain of Keith Smarts jumper that denied Syracuse a national title in 1987- and the joy of forward Carmelo Anthonys levitation act in the 2003 NCAA basketball championship game. They tell of the fierce SU-Georgetown basketball rivalry - and John Thompsons incendiary comments 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.
