The home of the Masters is a draw for basketball’s best, too

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — It was April 7, 2003. Exactly 18 years ago Wednesday, Syracuse defeated Kansas to win the NCAA men’s basketball national championship. The biggest win in school history, the biggest win in the Hall of Fame career of Orange coach Jim Boeheim. A couple hours after the game ended, Boeheim made a phone call. Even after the biggest win of his life, Augusta National was on his mind. Turns out, he had a deal with someone that if he ever won the national title, he’d get to play at the home of the Masters.
