CHICAGO — Jim Boeheim could not remember a better comeback in Syracuse history.

If anyone would know, it is Boeheim. At 71 years old, he is in his 40th year coaching the program.

Yet even Boeheim was surprised by the Orange’s wild rally for a 68-62 win over the Virginia Cavaliers on Sunday. The Orange closed the game on a 31-11 run and erased a 16-point, second-half deficit to advance to the Final Four for the sixth time in school history.
