Jim O’Connell joined Anthony Pucik and me as One on One got ready for college basketball in March.  O’Connell told us which conference he thinks is the toughest and how far Wichita State will go in this year’s national tournament.  He also told us how he has not lost all confidence in Syracuse despite their recent slide and he gave us his pick for who might be a dark horse to bust some brackets this year (here’s a hint: Fordham has played them!).

James Southerland: Stock Up

by Kenny Ducey

It goes without saying James Southerland can shoot the basketball. The 6’ 8” Senior Forward has hit 12 of the 15 threes he’s attempted through two games at the Big East Tournament, and he’s not done yet. Just five more and he’ll break the record of 16 held by Gerry McNamara, a former Orangeman, for most in a single tournament in history.

After Second-Round Wins, Wright and Boeheim Brace for Goodbye

It was over 33 years ago to the day, on February 29th, 1980, when Jim Boeheim stepped onto the Providence Civic Center floor to coach his first Big East Tournament game. His Syracuse Orange were coming off a heartbreaking 52-50 loss to Georgetown in their last game at Manley Field House, but that didn’t stop his team from toppling Connecticut 92-61 to reach the finals. While Syracuse fell short of the Hoyas again in the championship, they went on to receive a one-seed in the NCAA Tournament and advance to the Round of Eight.
