SU basketball, Jim Boeheim not worried about late season struggles

Heading into tomorrow's second round game, Syracuse isn't worried about its recent struggles. Today Jim Boeheim reflected on the end of the season and its similarities to last year's NCAA Tournament run.
"Last year we lost 5 out of our last 6 games, and went into the tournament." Boeheim said. "The tournament is a different thing. You can start playing well in one game, and all of a sudden you can get on a roll."
Senior C.J. Fair remembers last year's NCAA Tournament well, and he noted that if this team starts winning, they will be able to draw on the previous experience.
"We know what it takes to get there." Fair said. "It's not an easy road but it's fun so I think us having that experience can help us in a way."
But before the Orange can look ahead, it will have to face Western Michigan. SU and the Broncos tipoff in Buffalo Thursday at 2:45. You can watch the game right here on CBS-5.
