SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) After Wednesday’s 84-82 comeback victory at Notre Dame, Syracuse has won all three of its rematch games against teams it lost to earlier this season, and the last two of those paybacks have come on the road.
Forget about it actually having anything to do with revenge, though, according to Orange coach Jim Boeheim.
“That doesn’t win any games for you,” the second-winningest coach in NCAA Division I men’s history said after his team’s fourth straight victory overall. “It doesn’t work that way. You gotta go out and play. Everybody wants to win and revenge never has anything to do with it. The team that plays the best is the team that wins.”
