Where's the heat on 'Cuse's Boeheim?

Jim Boeheim has been a master at driving the Syracuse basketball team through a storm. That's the narrative on him now, that in a year of hard times, the Orange have kept winning. If they beat Ohio State on Saturday, they'll be in the Final Four. We love people who overcome adversity; it's one of the great feel-good cliches about sports: "It's a tribute to him...

Can Badgers solve the Orange's 2-3 zone?

MADISON, Wis. If death and taxes are the only two certainties in this life, Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim playing a 2-3 zone defense must run a close third. For 36 years, the matchup-zone has been a staple of Boeheim's coaching success at Syracuse, a component as tried and true as anything in the college basketball world. Only a coach with 889 victories and a national...

Jim Boeheim's halftime interview with Lesley Visser ends awkwardly (Video)

Heading into the locker room at halftime of Thursday night's NCAA basketball tournament game between Syracuse and Wisconsin, Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim had a quick interview with CBS analyst Lesley Visser.

Jim Boeheim: Charles Barkley is an idiot

When the 2012 NCAA tournament comes to a close, many of us will remember it as the year of the lane violation. You can go an entire season without seeing a single call for a lane violation on a free throw, yet we saw it during a round of 64 game and a round of 32 game already this year. Both times, the call may have affected the outcome of the game. Jim Boeheim’s squad was the...

Friday Audio: 'Cuse Coach, Players talk OSU

Syracuse, Boeheim remain resilient

Dial up sports radio the past few days and you heard wall-to-wall NFL coverage: the Peyton Manning saga, the Tim Tebow saga, the New Orleans Saints' bounty saga, even a bit of Robert Griffin III sprinkled in. Close your eyes, and you'd think it was fall. But, people, come on! This is March. March is no time for football. (Sorry, Arena Football League, but you don't count...

Syracuse story has unhappy ending

The assistant coach's son stood in the shadows, waiting in the tunnel for his favorite player. His father held him. The boy in the Syracuse t-shirt was crying. Their team had lost, 77-70 to Ohio State in the Elite Eight, leaving them one game short of Syracuse's first Final Four since 2003. But at this moment -- as the 11-year-old son of assistant coach Mike Hopkins waited...

Syracuse’s Dion Waiters Has Classic Reaction to Dumb Reporter Question

Classic television moment for Dion Waiters yesterday on NESN. With Syracuse in Boston the local media is discussing college basketball for the first time in years (pretty sure Boston College basketball has been relegated to the MAAC). So the lovely Dana McIntosh (who actually is a very good reporter) was chatting with Dion, and unwittingly stepped into a bear trap. Reporter: ...

Betting Notes: Wisconsin Badgers vs. Syracuse Orange

Here are all the details you need to make an informed wager on tonight’s Sweet 16 matchup. Who: Wisconsin Badgers vs. Syracuse Orange When: March 22nd @ 7:15pm EST. Line: Orange -3.5...

Darryl Gross Tells Fizz SU Being “Aggressive” About New Football Facility When Daryl Gross was hired as athletic director at Syracuse, there was plenty of backlash. Who was this hot shot coming in from California, what did he know about upstate New York? Since, there has been plenty of good and some inarguable bad. He’s imported solid coaches into the athletic department, made Olympic sports a priority, and marketed the Orange as New York’s...

Syracuse Basketball: SU’s season ends against Ohio State

For most of the fan base the thought of anything but a Final Four was out of the question for a team, who started in the Top 5 this year in the polls, stayed there all season long, including a six week stretch where they were No. 1, that seemed to find a way to overcome anything, be it on the field or off of it. But after having watched the East’s top seed Syracuse (34-3 ~ 14-2...

Ohio St.-Syracuse Preview

One of the old axioms of college basketball is that you play zone against a team that plays zone. Syracuse, which plays the best zone defense in the sport right now, has struggled recently against zones.
