Boeheim Now in the 900 Club

Syracuse is 10-0 for the season, 30-0 at home dating back to the end of the 2010-11 campaign, and Boeheim now has 900 wins. Get a quick recap of the win over Detroit inside.

Syracuse Orange men's basketball head coach Jim Boeheim joins Bobby Knight and Mike Krzyzewski as the only NCAA Division I men's basketball coaches with at least 900 wins in their careers.

Syracuse was the first to score, with sophomore forward Rakeem Christmas connecting on a layup inside off of an assist by fellow sophomore, guard Michael Carter-Williams.

From there, the University of Detroit Mercy Titans would tie the game at 4 apiece and come within one possession.

Senior forward James Southerland's shooting prowess carried over from the match against Canisius, with Southerland making five of his six attempts from three-point range in the first half alone.

Carter-Williams, who has had at least nine assists in the last eight games extended that streak to nine-straight, with 10 in this contest. He had seven at the half.

Southerland led Syracuse in scoring with 22 points on this historic moment in Orange history.

But, Syracuse gave up a substantial lead in the second half, dwindling down to a three-point advantage twice.

A free throw made by Carter-Williams with 1.2 seconds remaining sealed the door on the Syracuse win, 72-68.
