SYRACUSE, N.Y. — His team is unbeaten and ranked fourth in the nation and has won 48 straight nonconference games and 26 in a row at home.
Just don't tell Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim his Orange is ready for the challenges of the rugged Big East.
"We're trying to get ready for conference play," Boeheim said Monday night after Syracuse beat Eastern Michigan 84-48 in a sloppy game. "We'll have some tough games, more than enough to get you ready.
"To just assume we're going to win games is the most arrogant thing I have ever seen in my life."
On this night the Orange (6-0) pulled it out despite 18 turnovers as Michael Carter-Williams had 11 points to lead five players in double figures and added 11 assists.
