Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim wants reporters to know that he's never lost to John Beilein
Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim referenced his 9-0 career record against Michigan basketball coach John Beilein while making a point to reporters on Monday about how his program is covered.
Boeheim didn't like that reporters singled out a recent losing skid against Louisville coach Rick Pitino. Check out the video below. Boeheim talks about comparisons to Pitino at the 3:45 mark and brings up Beilein at 6:48.
Boeheim's displeasure was directed mostly at Syracuse Post-Standard reporters Mike Waters and Donna Ditota because of this article. From the press conference when Boeheim asked if they knew what his record is against Beilein:
"No idea," Ditota said.
"Well, then you don't know your business," Boeheim said.
"Why would I know that?" Ditota responded. "Why would I know John Beilein's record against you? When is the last time you played John Beilein?"
"This year," Boeheim said. "Mike, you know?"
"I don't think he's ever beaten you," Waters said.
"Yeah, you don't think," Boeheim said. "You're right. That's the way they work here. They think that's cute."
Boeheim and Syracuse beat Michigan, 53-50, earlier this season in the Legends Classic semifinal.
