The Syracuse win over Duke was big for the team and program but as it turns out, it was a bonus for a Syracuse class as well.

Their professor, one Brian Taylor, had a test scheduled and gave everyone a three point bonus. He called it the Gillon Rule and said it was adopted at 9:57 Wednesday night.

We don’t know anything about the good professor, but his students seem to like him okay.
