Boeheim, in contrast, looked on calmly, occasionally resting his chin on his right fist while seated. He seemed something like an interested observer rather than active participant in the proceedings.
Sure must have liked what he saw, though.
"They never really succeeded in getting the ball in the right places," Boeheim said about the Hoosiers. "And it's not that easy, but it can be done. But they didn't know how to do that."
Indiana needed more than 10 minutes of action to record its second field goal, and didn't crack double figures in points until Zeller's tip-in with 14 minutes elapsed made it 22-11.
Syracuse raced to an 18-point edge, at 29-11 with about 3½ minutes left in the first half, on C.J. Fair's inside basket.
Christian Watford finally made Indiana's first 3 — on the team's seventh attempt from beyond the arc — with 1½ minutes to go in the half, cutting the deficit to 11 and earning a palm slap from Oladipo.
But Syracuse took a 34-22 lead into the locker room.
Oladipo's 3 made it a six-point game with 14 minutes left and Syracuse ahead 38-32. That's when Carter-Williams really took over, scoring 10 during a 14-5 run that put the Orange up 52-37 with 9 minutes to go.
Syracuse lost four of five games heading into the Big East tournament, but is on quite a roll now. The Orange have won six of their past seven games — the only defeat was in the conference tournament final against Louisville, when Syracuse blew a big second-half lead.
There was no such collapse against Indiana, thanks mainly to Boeheim's D.
