Jim Boeheim: 'We Have The Right Kind Of Talent' In 2012

Jim Boeheim is back in town after the 2012 Olympics and it's time to get back to work with the Syracuse Orange. Before he does that, he decided to do a round of interviews. Here's some video of him talking to CNY Central's Niko Tamurian about his recent gold-medal venture at the 2012 Olympics as well as the state of the current team and recruiting.

"We think we have the right kind of talent, the right experience, the right blend of veterans and young guys...that we can be competitive in the Big East and if you're competitive in the Big East, you're competitive in the country."

Boeheim also hopped on the phone with Brent Axe on his "On the Block" on The Score 1260 to talk about the same things. He also talked about what the Olympic experience did for Coach Hopkins (besides turning him into a zombie) and expanding on his "controversial" statements about Michael Jordan and LeBron James.

As for the Orange and their recruiting philosophy (the one that just landed them Tyler Ennis)...

"Our recruiting philosophy has never really changed. We try and bring in the best players to fit in our system, do what we need to do and do well in school and be good teammates. We look for great players. We also look for good, solid players that we think we can develop into great players.

We think C.J. Fair is a good example. He was a very good player. Not a top recruit, but a good recruit. We think he is developing into one of the best players in his class."
