Jim Boeheim on Syracuse win and advancing to Final Four on Georgetown’s court: ‘That kind of makes it a little sweeter’

The Syracuse Orange topped the Marquette Golden Eagles on Saturday, 55-39, to advance to the 2013 Final Four.

It is the first Final Four for Syracuse in 10 years, which is extremely “sweet” for a program that is seen as one of the perennial powers in college basketball.

What made it even sweeter for head coach Jim Boeheim and Cuse fans around the country, however, was the fact that the game was won on Georgetown’s home-court.

The rivalry between Syracuse and Georgetown in the Big East has been well-documented over the years. The two teams simply do not like one another.

With the Big East, as we’ve grown to know it, disbanding and the Orange headed to the ACC, the two will no longer meet on a regular basis.

Thus, for now, Syracuse and head coach Jim Boheim have gotten the last laugh.
