PLAYERS: Jim Boeheim
TEAMS: Syracuse Orange
Via @chris1linkThe Syracuse Orange are taking on the UConn Huskies in the Big East Tournament today. Jim Boeheim was spotted on the bench picking his nose. This wasn’t a half pick or anything.

Open Letter to Big East Media Who Didn’t Vote Boeheim Coach of the Year Dear Big East Media, A horrible injustice has been done and it needs to be corrected now. How did you vote Stan Heath Coach of the Year over Jim Boeheim? USF had a nice season, gave plenty of good teams excellent efforts, and overall took a step forward as a program. But Boeheim not winning COY is a travesty. Please consider: Boeheim is a Hall of Fame coach, known more...

Jim Boeheim does not know E-Mailing

Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim told Pete Thamel (They stole the picture I use of Boeheim all the time, grrr.) of the NY Times that he has never sent an email, ever. That’s a neat factoid. Let the madness begin. Also, Syracuse does not have to ever deal with that Jim Tressel college football dilemma with their college basketball team. Unfortunately, they have other issues to handle... TV: Postgame Q&A with Boeheim, Players

Another Syracuse - UConn game went down to the wire on Thursday, and the Orange was able to hold off the Huskies late for the third time this season. After the game, Coach Jim Boeheim and a couple of players spoke to the media about the Big East Quarterfinal win.

Amid another scandal, Syracuse heads for Garden

Fourteen former Syracuse players worked out for NFL scouts on Thursday in Manley Field House, including punter Rob Long. Scouts from 31 NFL teams and a couple of general managers showed up. That's up from 24 teams a year ago, a good sign for Orange coach Doug Marrone, whose third season at the helm ended with a five-game losing streak and no bowl appearance. The workouts were...

3 more overtimes, 4 Big East teams still standing

Three more overtimes, four Big East teams standing. And there's plenty still to come at Madison Square Garden.

“Nothing Bothers Us.” Boeheim’s Famous Words as Syracuse Beats UConn

AP Photo Forget the competition. Dismiss the pressure. Most of all, throw away the distractions. Jim Boeheim and his Syracuse Orange have no use for all of it.

We...

Big Game James Steps Up, Syracuse’s Path to Title Clears at MSG

ESPN UConn led by 8 with 14:10 to play, following a vicious Andre Drummond highlight put back slam and Syracuse looked to be on the ropes. In fact, the Huskies still led until the 5:45 mark, and no Orange other than Dion Waiters could hit a shot. It appeared SU was looking at an early exit from the Big East Tourney via a familiar villain. But the Orange were suddenly saved by an...

Beat Cincy

Syracuse and Cincinnati play tonight in the Big East semifinals and there's no doubt the greatest game ever played between the two teams happen in 2006 at the Garden. While I can't believe it's been six years, I can believe that it is still awesome - even if it was more awesome live when I was sitting in the stands.Besides the obvious, a couple of things really stand...
