SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Jim Boeheim is about to embark on territory he's only visited one other time in his long tenure at Syracuse - playing in a new conference.

He and the Orange have officially walked away from the Big East - and those heated rivalries - and entered the Atlantic Coast Conference, where Duke will become the new Georgetown on the schedule.

Last year, Syracuse made its fourth appearance in the Final Four since Boeheim took over in 1976. The Orange finished 30-10 after a heart-wrenching loss to Michigan in the national semifinals.

Despite losing three starters - guard Brandon Triche and sharpshooting forward James Southerland graduated, while point guard Michael Carter-Williams left early for the NBA - Syracuse has reloaded and is ready to challenge again.

The Orange are picked to finish second to Duke in the ACC preseason poll.
