Syracuse University basketball fans are snatching up any Orange hoops gear they can find now that the team has advanced to the Final Four in Atlanta.
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - Syracuse University basketball fans are snatching up any Orange hoops gear they can find now that the team has advanced to the Final Four in Atlanta.

And the gear isn’t just going on people – some pet stores expect to run out of SU-themed pet merchandise within the week.

Canines Unleashed owner Ann Liberati said the NCAA Tournament always brings an influx of business. SU’s success in the 2012-13 campaign has made people even more willing to buy orange and blue outfits for their pets.

“This week is pretty much going to be a blowout. Every year March Madness is crazy here. Obviously the more they win the more people are rushing in,” said Canines Unleashed owner Ann Liberati.
