After Syracuse cut the lead to two, 64-62, with 4:46 remaining, a Delk misfire was tipped in by Walter McCarty to extend UK's lead to four. After holding the Orangemen on the next possession, Derek Anderson drained a three to push the lead to seven. SU would get no closer than five in the final minutes. Delk was joined on the Final Four All-Tournament Team by Freshman Ron Mercer, who was sensational off the bench, scoring a career-high 20 points.
