Undated-AP -- Syracuse University surprised a lot of people and won the N-C-A-A men's basketball championship just a few months ago. Paramount Home video is releasing a D-V-D chronicling the Orangemen's season called "Finally Orange".

Syracuse defeated Kansas to win the championship.

Jim Nantz of C-B-S Sports narrates the D-V-D and he does the play-by-play for the championship game.

The final game is included on the D-V-D, minus the commercial breaks, the half-time activities and stops in play.

Nantz says the championship game was mentally wrenching to watch, because a lot was on the line. Kansas was in the game right to the end, but Syracuse prevailed.

Nantz says almost every step along the way in the N-C-A-A tournament there were doubts about how far Syracuse would go. He says what made the whole thing special for Syracuse and for college basketball fans was that no one saw it coming.
