ATLANTA (AP) - Some get paid millions to solve the sort of riddle facing the Michigan coaching staff at the Final Four this weekend.
How do you score against the Syracuse 2-3 zone defense?
With hundreds of college basketball's brightest minds in town for a coaching convention that runs in tandem with the Final Four, The Associated Press picked out a handful and asked this simple question: Given a week to prepare, how would you try to pick apart Syracuse?
``A week to prepare?'' said Steve Robinson, a longtime assistant for Roy Williams. ``Some people haven't been able to prepare for that and they've had all season.''
Syracuse's last opponent, Marquette, scored 39 points. Since the start of the tournament, Boeheim's defense is allowing 45 points a game and 27 percent shooting.
