John Clay: Once again, John Calipari's ability to adapt and change is about to be tested

  John Clay: Once again, John Calipari's ability to adapt and change is about to be tested LEXINGTON, Ky. - The coaches remain the same, but college basketball is about to change. There was John Calipari at Kentucky's basketball media day on Tuesday. It was the 11th at UK for the man with a new lifetime contract. ("There's no such thing," Cal cracked. "They could fire me in a year and there's my lifetime right there.") He said he' refreshed and ready for the start of a new chapter. He’ll also be 61 years old in February, a head coach now for more than three decades. And Cal’s a young pup, by comparison. Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim is 74. Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski is going strong at 72.

With five freshmen on board and lots of scoring to replace, that's a plus.

''Everybody on the trip contributed and looked comfortable in what we were trying to do. We're a little further ahead,'' Boeheim said Friday at the team's annual media day. ''From that point of view, it was very helpful. But basically you still go back and do the same things that you would do every year. We're a little further ahead. There's personnel coming back, but there's so many new guys you do a lot of teaching stuff that is new to them.''

Among those returning are forwards Elijah Hughes, Marek Dolezaj, Robert Braswell, and Bourama Sidibe, and guards Howard Washington, Buddy Boeheim - the coach's youngest son - and Jalen Carey. Gone is a trio - Tyus Battle, Oshae Brissett and Frank Howard - that played big minutes and accounted for 55 percent of the scoring on a team that averaged 69.7 points a game last season, as well as towering center Paschal Chukwu, who had 57 blocks.

''The difference with this year's team and last year's with Tyus, Frank, and Oshae you basically had three guys that were going to play 38 minutes,'' Boeheim said. ''And this year the only guy at this stage that looks like he would be playing that many minutes would be Elijah. I think there's more flexibility in terms of the minutes.''

Hughes was second on the team in scoring last season at 13.7 points per game and led with 87 3-pointers, and he'll be looked at to be one of the leaders.

''It's what you come to Syracuse for. You want to be a leader. You want to be that guy that people look at to make plays,'' Hughes said. ''I'm looking forward to it.''

Newcomers include forward Quincy Guerrier, centers John Bol Ajak and Jesse Edwards, and guards Joseph Girard III, New York state's all-time leading scorer, and Brycen Goodine.

''We're pretty flexible where guys are going to play,'' Boeheim said. ''We have five guards and four can play the point. We'll see how it goes. It's a work in progress. We're trying to figure out who's going to play. There's nothing set in stone. We'll be flexible with how we play guys. It could change, literally, from game to game. We'll see how people play.''

Luke DeCock: With talent drain at the top, it's a wide-open ACC basketball race (for a change)

  Luke DeCock: With talent drain at the top, it's a wide-open ACC basketball race (for a change) It's a good year to be a mid-tier ACC basketball team. After unprecedented player turnover - there are only two returning all-ACC players, both off the third team - this may be not only the most wide-open basketball season in years, but a rare down year for the ACC. Zion Williamson is gone, the stars of Virginia's national championship team are gone, North Carolina is starting over with another freshman point guard and Duke is starting over with another freshman class. Meanwhile, Big East exiles Louisville and Notre Dame may have the best returning veteran talent in the league.

Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim talks with guard Frank Howard during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game at the Carrier Dome in this Syracuse basketball's 2017-18 season has been a wild ride. The Orange struggled against the nation's top teams yet still earned a NCAA Tournament

Syracuse Orange fans, cheerleaders filled the Carrier Dome in Syracuse on Saturday, February 4, to cheer Coach Jim Boeheim onto 1000th win. The Syracuse

Last year the Orange had the nation's tallest team - topped by the 7-foot-2 Chukwu - but Boeheim's defensive scheme faltered in the postseason, allowing Baylor to hit 16 3-pointers in a 78-68 first-round victory over Syracuse in the NCAA Tournament.

Syracuse, which went 20-14 last season, was picked to finish eighth in the Atlantic Coast Conference in 2019-20, behind Notre Dame and just ahead of Miami. Duke, North Carolina, Louisville, reigning national champion Virginia and Florida State were the top five. No Syracuse player was picked for the All-ACC team.

This season marks the ACC's first 20-game conference slate, including seven league games to begin the regular season. Doubleheaders are scheduled for Nov. 5-6 on the ACC Network, with Virginia visiting Syracuse on Nov. 6 in the Orange's season opener after a pair of late-October exhibitions.

''Obviously, it's a tough conference,'' Boeheim said. ''It's the same for everybody. You're starting new. It's new challenges every year. I look forward to it.''

For Girard, also a star quarterback in high school, it was a surreal moment as he contemplated playing in the Orange's scrimmage Friday night in the Carrier Dome as a member of the basketball team he rooted for as a kid back home in Glens Falls.

Duke picked as ACC basketball favorite; UNC's Cole Anthony picked as top freshman

  Duke picked as ACC basketball favorite; UNC's Cole Anthony picked as top freshman Having won two of the last three ACC championships, while not finishing first in the regular-season standings since 2010, Duke is the favorite to win this year's ACC basketball title, according to a media poll released by the league on Thursday. In voting by media members attending the ACC's Operation Basketball season tipoff event in Charlotte on Tuesday, Duke received 51 first-place votes off the 111 ballots submitted. The Blue Devils scored 1,564 points in the balloting, finishing ahead of North Carolina, which had 19 first-place votes and 1,493 points. Louisville received the second-most first-place votes (29) but finished No.

''It's crazy,'' Girard said. ''I played football games in the dome before. To think that I'm going to be here playing basketball repping Syracuse this year is really different. You've kind of got to pinch yourself - is this really happening?''
