ATLANTA (AP) - Jim Boeheim sat on a stool most of the night, hand propped against his chin, looking more like a man proctoring a math exam than one coaching a basketball game.

Not much a coach can do when his best shooters can't find the basket.

The Syracuse coach scored only two points less than his best player, Michael Carter-Williams.

Boeheim's most dangerous shooter, James Southerland, had five.

Two players who account for 25 points a game combined for three measly buckets Saturday. That was easily the difference in a 61-56 semifinal loss to Michigan.

So bad were things for Southerland that, trailing by three with 17.9 seconds to go, Boeheim didn't go to him, instead calling a play for Trevor Cooney to drive hard to the basket. He missed and Syracuse never got a chance at the tying shot.
