Boeheim on Howard: I don’t know. He’s doing what he’s supposed to be doing. If all goes well, he’ll be able to practice a week before our first regular-season game. If all goes well.

Boeheim on Sidibe: He’s got some soreness but much better than last year. Believes the soreness is just a matter of recovery.

Boeheim: All three freshmen are doing as well as we could hope.

Boeheim on Buddy: Once he got here he’s been treated like any other player on the team. He’s got to perform. If he can help us he can play.

Boeheim: I think Elijah improved last year. He worked extremely hard. He’s in great shape and ready to go.

Boeheim on Oshae: Finishing around the basket. I think he can do that. I think he’s stronger. He was a very good rebounder last year.

Boeheim points at Dolezaj’s offensive efforts as the difference when Syracuse played better at the end of last year.

Boeheim on defense: Same guys. They should improve. They should be at least as good or better.

Boeheim: We’re ahead of where we were last year. You have to remember last year we had two freshman forwards, our point guard was coming off a mediocre year. There’s a world of difference.

Boeheim: Paschal is stronger. Marek has gained a pound, pound and a half. Everyone had a great summer. I’ve seen more improvement than normal.

Boeheim on Tyus: I think we forget he had a really good year last year despite a lot of defensive concentration. His shooting percentages will get better because he’ll have more help around him.

Boeheim on FBI and AAU: What happened with the shoe companies would happen with or without summer basketball. ... Summer basketball helps a lot of players.

Boeheim on being bothered by rankings: That’s not true. ... People say we’re better when we’re not ranked. That’s not supported by facts. ... But we live in a country where facts don’t matter.

Boeheim on zone: Size is OK. It’s nice. It’s not the end of the world. It doesn’t hurt. Length doesn’t hurt no matter what defense you play.

Boeheim on Marek: Once he started to make that 15-footer he became more of a threat. That was the difference. His task this year is can he move that out.

Boeheim on Washington: He’s still working on his knee. He’s out a little while yet.

That’s all folks. Thanks for following.

I spit up my drink when I read that. Hilarious.
I also loved, “But we live in a country where facts don’t matter.” JB on fire!

It's this kind of snarky aside that I just love.

We should treat his knee like a pitcher with a surgically repaired arm who is held to a pre-determined pitch count. His minutes need to be monitored and limited. Marek will need to spend some time in the hole with Hughes on the back line.
