The Orange lost 61-39 to the Hoyas and the 39 points are the lowest a Boeheim-coached Syracuse squad has ever scored.
“Well, you know, I’m pretty much ready to go play golf some place,” Boeheim said. “If I was 40 years old, I’d be real upset. I’m not … 40 years old. That should be obvious.”
Boeheim, 68, is in his 37th season as the coach of Syracuse and has 912 victories over his career.
“I haven’t given a thought to retiring,” declared Boeheim, who is in his 50th consecutive year — as student, player and coach — at Syracuse. “There’s nothing to talk about because I haven’t given a thought to it. I’ve never … ever … ever … ever … said anything about retiring.”
