Jim Boeheim is taking his team to Italy for a summer tour and a chance to integrate a large and talented freshman class.

So what will you be doing there Jim?

“I would never gamble in a game during the regular season, but if you gamble over there and it doesn’t work, it’s not going to be a problem. Until I see them I don’t know that there’s not some possibility that we won’t play some man-to-man. So we’ll see how this team is and then after we get through practices in the fall, we’ll decide if we play it in some situations.”

It’s 2019. Mike Krzyzewski is playing zone and Jim Boeheim is looking at man-to-man. Looks like we’re in the Upside-Down now.
