Syracuse Schedule: Boeheim Not Happy With SU's Start

The Syracuse Orange are 4-0 on the young season and ranked No. 10 in the country. Long-time coach Jim Boeheim is far from happy with the play of his squad, as he told WFAN's Boomer & Carton. Here some excerpts, courtesy of Sports Radio Interviews.

On his team’s early struggles:

"Well we struggled in all four, which is not a good sign. Usually we play a little bit better earlier in the year and we’re struggling. We were behind in three of those four games. … We haven’t shot the ball well. We’ve played pretty well, but we shot it like 36 percent from the field, 20 percent from the 3-point line."

On playing cupcake schedules early on:

"You’ve gotta get some wins. Everybody this time of year, everybody always criticizes us. Everybody plays some easy games this time of year. It’s just the way it is. You look at anybody’s schedule, that’s what you do. I thought we would have an easy game. We haven’t had one yet."

The Orange are at Michigan Friday night. They still have a long way to go before Big East Conference play starts, so it's hardly time to be concerned. A lot of this might just be Boeheim trying to get some of his youngsters to focus and not take these early games for granted.
