(Throughout March Madness, I’ll be attempting to cover other college alumni. I’ll take requests, but won’t necessarily grant them.)
Jim Boeheim is one of college basketball’s finest coaches, and Syracuse has a renowned basketball program. Other than Carmelo Anthony though, SU churns out below average NBA players. I’m guessing this has something to do with Boeheim’s zone defense, which is only used sparingly in the NBA to throw an opponent off.
