Boeheim sensed team was overrated

Syracuse and its Big East brethren are making a big statement.
Big East test for SU on Saturday
'Cuse appears primed for the beginning of Big East play
Ok, so maybe they were not over-rated, after all. After watching the Syracuse Orange men struggle mightily against the soft underbelly of their schedule, who could blame us for thinking they would be over matched when they played seventh-ranked Michigan State in the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden Tuesday night.
Sports fans love a good debate. And if you really want to ignite a heated discourse, just ask them to pick an all-time team. The Syracuse Post-Standard recently did just that ? asking its readers to choose an all-time SU hoops starting five, plus a sixth man. Nearly 1,000 votes were cast with Carmelo Anthony topping the charts, followed by Derrick Coleman, Sherman Douglas, Dave Bing and Roosevelt Bouie. Stevie Thompson, who finished seventh in the balloting, just behind center Rony Seikaly, was chosen as the sixth man.
Although they?re unbeaten and ranked ninth in the country through four games, the Syracuse University basketball team has not looked sharp. Perhaps, by hitting the road, the Orange men will finally begin hitting their shots and their stride.
Orange RounI have to agree with Jim Boeheim?s assessment of this Syracuse University basketball team so far ? they appear to be ?overrated.? Now, yes, it?s still very early. We?re only three games into this campaign, and this is a young team that?s still very much a work in progress. And I think the Orange men have a chance to be very good by February and March. But, in order for them to justify their lofty No. 10 ranking, a bunch of things are going to need to change.dup
