The Boston College Eagles shocked the college basketball world Sunday afternoon, not just by virtue of defeating the Syracuse Orange, but the circumstances in which the defeat happened.

For one thing, the Eagles dominated the game, never trailing. The game wasn’t even tied past 10-10.

For another, this was supposed to be a good Syracuse team, a team that Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said was the “best team [they’ve] had in a long time.”

Finally, it was a victory that snapped a 664 day losing streak in-conference for the Boston College Eagles.

Because this was a special game, we believe that it deserves special attention. That is why we have decided to do a special basketball edition of the Tweetcap, to look back on the day that was New Year’s Day, 2017, the day the Boston College Eagles snapped a historic losing streak.

We hope you enjoy looking back on the win.
