Jim Boeheim and the 2012-13 Syracuse Orange look poised to make a run in the 2013 NCAA Tournament, but several areas need improvement in order for the team to reach its first Final Four in a decade (2003).
Syracuse’s recent 70-68 win over then-No. 1 ranked Louisville moved them within the top three ranked teams in the nation, but they will certainly be tested by the teams remaining in their schedule and the Big East tournament.
If Syracuse makes these five adjustments, President Barack Obama might find it difficult not to choose this Syracuse team to make the Final Four while filling out his presidential tournament brackets come March.
