I didnt see any luck involved, I saw good D. However, the TV announcers even mentioned SU's complacency issues when playing teams they are "expected" to beat- such as Richmond. Any of us who have followed the team as long as most of us have, know for a fact that it is one of the fuels for the Boeheim bashers. The lack of motivation sometimes exhibited by the team(s) against "lesser " teams has been evident for years.
I know that with the talent and depth they have on the team this year, I believe/expect/hope they could win most games by 10-15 points, but that just doesnt happen anymore unless everything is clicking perfectly and the other team isnt. I agree w/ Gio, the "mid level" teams are not necessarily that anymore. Hell I'm still mad about losing to Verfreakingmont - how many years ago now??? !
