Midseason oddity -- Syracuse Orange at .500 after 16 games

Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim is in uncharted territory. Midway through his 46th year at the helm, his Orange are a .500 team after 16 games. Boeheim attributes the record mostly to an underperforming defense. Before a 77-61 victory at home over Pittsburgh on Tuesday night, the Orange had fallen below .500 after three straight conference losses by a combined nine points. Two were on the road, a one-point loss to Miami and a three-point overtime loss to Wake Forest. The Orange's second-half performance against the Panthers — Pitt was held to 5-of-21 shooting — was the sort of moment Boeheim has been waiting for.
