Another Sweet 16 appearance for Jim Boeheim, who has made a career out of getting to the second weekend of the NCAA tourney. Unfortunately, in 17 games in the Sweet 16, Boeheim is just 5-12. But one of those wins came last year. Here’s how Syracuse can beat the Hoosiers and climb within one step of the Final Four.
Turnovers and lost possessions have been a big reason for many of SU’s losses this year. Michael Carter-Williams and Brandon Triche must be efficient tonight. MCW and Triche need to break a tough in your face defense of Victor Oladipo and other Hoosiers. IU is fast and can score in transition. The Hoosiers also have Cody Zeller down low to finish. Syracuse turnovers will result in easy points for Indiana.
Make Indiana force it inside
Indiana is the third best shooting team in the country and shoots 40 percent from three. The Hoosiers have three options for long-range shooting in Oladipo, Christian Watford and Jordan Hulls. These guys know how to shoot ove...

Syracuse now have moved on to the East Regional Final, where the Orange will take on No. 3 seed Marquette on Saturday night. Hopefully...

Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim looks like a relatively normal guy in real life. That being said, this dude made Boeheim's face look about as bizarre as he could.
During Syracuse's upset win last night over Indiana in the 2013 NCAA tournament, CBS cameras caught one Orangemen fan wearing a mask of head coach Jim Boeheim.
Let me warn ahead of schedule that this one is pretty creepy:

WASHINGTON D.C.–Here’s the way it will go down with Jim Boeheim at Syracuse. He will wake up one morning next September. He will look out his window, check to see if winter has yet arrived, say good morning to his family and make a simple decision. Either he will go about his business as the… Read More
Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim knows full well that one of the secrets to success for his team's 2-3 zone defense is the way it confounds opponents who aren't used to playing against that suffocating system.
The No. 4-seeded Orange won't have that element in their favor in the NCAA tournament's East Regional final.
That's because Syracuse will face a familiar foe...
It took winning a national title for Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim to get over a late-shot loss to Indiana the last time the schools faced off in the NCAA tournament.
This meeting, 26 years later, was never close enough to come down to the final seconds, thanks mostly to Boeheim's trademark 2-3 zone defense. Now he has the Orange one victory from getting back to the Final Four...

Not many fans thought D.C. would be the place of good fortune for Orange three weeks ago. Now it could be the site of SU’s dance into the Final Four. Prior to Syracuse’s win over top-seeded Indiana 61-50 at the Verizon Center, the last time the Orange played on that court was when Georgetown ripped SU to pieces, 61-39 back on March 9th.

It has been quite the journey for Indiana basketball the past five seasons, and though the program is nationally revelant once again, the group that brought them back was completely lost last night against Syracuse and their zone. The best way to stifle a fastbreak team in basketball is to slow down the game, and there is no better way of doing that than by using a defense that minimizes...

Temple held a 50-46 lead over the Indiana Hoosiers last Sunday with 2:46 to play. The Owls had mixed in man with their zone schemes and had slowed Indiana to a crawl. Meanwhile, Temple tried to put Indiana on ice with a conservative offensive game plan where they stopped moving on offense and attacking the basket off the dribble. Although Temple ended up losing, the Owls aired...
