In the course of coaching a premier college basketball program for nearly five decades, it would be easy to assume that one would get pretty good at assessing their team's chances from one year to the next. On Wednesday at the ACC Men's Basketball Media Day, Boeheim told several reporters that this year's squad of Orange will go to the Big Dance in March. After suffering his first losing season since taking up the profession at Syracuse, the 77 year-old coach is ready to get his team back to playing tournament basketball.
With Syracuse University Men's Basketball entering the Sweet 16, fans will eagerly be waiting for Saturday's game against Houston. Those excited fans will have to wait until 9:55PM for that game to tip off and for now that means they won't be able to go to a bar or restaurant to watch it.
