Hakim Warrick


At the time, I was actually the center so I was under the basket. So I was just trying to contest it.

I didn't think I'd be able to get out there. It was like slow motion. [Syracuse guard] Kueth [Duany] was actually on my right. He went out and contested the shot from [Kansas guard Kirk] Hinrich, who threw it to the corner. [Kansas guard Michael Lee] was wide open.

Kueth was supposed to get back, but I knew there was no way that he was going to be able to get back so I just tried to go make a play on the ball.

I've seen the picture a million times, a million different angles. It's just one of those special moments.
