Syracuse, NY – After his team strengthened the case of the NCAA tournament bid with a 64-54 win over Clemson on Wednesday, Syracuse’s coach Jim Boeheim took the opportunity at a post-game press conference to Identify the case of his team
Clemson’s win, including Orange’s win over North Carolina on Monday, gave Orange’s NCAA hopes that lag behind last week’s road losses at Duke and Georgia Tech.
Syracuse̵7;s stats are now 15-8 overall and 9-7 in the ACC.
“ It’s hard going 9-7 in this league, ” Boheim said.
Syracuse now has to wait until the start of next week’s ACC for the next opportunity to improve the NCAA profile.Syracuse is a lone ACC team with goodbye on the final weekend of the regular season.
Most NCAA bracket professionals have Syracuse at the top of their NCAA bid. But still looking from the outside
“I think we have done a lot,” Boheim said. “I really do. I think it will be very difficult to choose a tournament this year. I think our league doesn’t get enough respect. That’s part of it I think we have a lot of good teams. We don’t have a great team this year. We have many good teams. A lot of good work teams We’ll get to see what it’s like at the end. ”
Boeheim’s argument on behalf of Orange has no dire losses and has an outstanding record against teams in the NCAA Quadrants 2 and 3.
A weakness in Syracuse’s CV is the lack of Quadrant 1 Orange win is 0-6 compared to the NCAA Falling Quadrant 1 team.
“All I know for sure is, I think after today we were 11-2 in Quad 2 and 3, which was pretty good,” Boheim said. The loss was terrible and we had no loss of Quadrant 4. ”
Boeheim tried to argue that he was not paying attention to the bracket. But his own words betrayed him as he criticized him, admitting he had seen them.
“I didn’t look there because I saw teams at 0-8 on the road this year and they are in the tournament or on the edge,” Boheim said. “I don’t care about that anymore. I saw a team with a losing record that is still in there. I mean everything is speculation. ”
