ACC commissioner John Swofford says Syracuse Orange head coach Jim Boeheim won't be disciplined for storming the court in protest of a charging foul against his team in a 66-60 road loss to the Duke Blue Devils last weekend.

Syracuse Orange head coach Jim Boeheim won't be disciplined for his outburst against the Duke Blue Devils on Feb. 22.

The decision was made by ACC commissioner John Swofford, per The Associated Press:  

"The ACC commissioner said Monday that Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim won't be disciplined after he came onto the court to protesting a key charging call during the Orange's 66-60 loss at Duke over the weekend

"Commissioner John Swofford said he agreed with Boeheim's ejection during Saturday's game and noted the charge was a 'judgment call' by officials. 

"Swofford wouldn't say whether official Tony Greene made the right call when he whistled Syracuse's C.J. Fair for charging with 10.4 seconds left, leading to Boeheim's brief fit of rage."

The ACC commissioner told The Associated Press the call on Fair is not subject for review.

"We don't second guess judgment calls that officials give. They have to make them all of the time. That's probably the toughest call in basketball to make, even with the way it's changed. I think it's made a little easier with the rule change, but it's still a tough call."

The report of Boeheim escaping punishment confirms what conference spokesperson Amy Yakola told ESPN.com's Andy Katz on Feb. 23. 

The ESPN update then emphasizes the difference between a would-be charging foul call in previous years to one this season.

"Under the revised block/charge rule put into place before this season in men's basketball, a defensive player is not permitted to move into the path of an offensive player once he has started his upward motion with the ball to attempt a field goal or pass.

"If the defensive player is not in legal guarding position by this time, it is a blocking foul.

"Previously, a defender had to be in legal guarding position when the offensive player lifted off the floor." 

With Boeheim's latest tantrum, ESPN's Dana O'Neil writes the current NCAA season has been filled with extreme displays of emotion from coaches, players and fans alike.

"Boeheim joins UConn's Kevin Ollie and Iowa's Fran McCaffery in the Early Showers Club, all tossed from games after fits of rage; Northwestern (Northwestern?) and Ohio State came to near blows in a game recently; Marcus Smart will play his second game Monday night after earning a three-game suspension for shoving a fan; and that fan, previously anonymous superfan Jeff Orr, has recused himself from future Texas Tech games because of his own behavior."

Boeheim's Orange (25-2) are currently No. 4 in the AP Top 25.

Carmelo: Leaving Knicks 'Was Close'

Aug 22 2014 9:51am CDT | Source: RealGM Basketball Wiretap

Carmelo Anthony decided to re-sign with the New York Knicks in July after strongly considering joining the Chicago Bulls. “It was close, it was close. I don’t even like to talk about that no more,” said Anthony. “This is home. There is no place like New York. Although the other situations were very intriguing, there is no place like New York.” Anthony's college coach, Jim Boeheim, thought he should have le ...

Will Carmelo Anthony Have to Reinvent Himself for NY Knicks Next Season?

Aug 21 2014 6:19am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The New York Knicks made exactly one splashy move this offseason: re-signing Carmelo Anthony to a five-year contract worth $124 million. All other transactions served as window dressing, with Anthony returning to play a salary-cap waiting game for the 2014-15 season, before the Knicks actually free up money to sign talented free agents next summer. But can Anthony's potent game fit seamlessly into the Phil Jackson system? The present incarna ...

Jim Boeheim Thinks Carmelo Anthony Would Be Better off with Chicago Bulls

Aug 19 2014 3:27pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Of all the big-name signings that highlighted this summer’s frenzied free-agency period, none are riper for second-guessing than Carmelo Anthony’s decision to ink a fresh five-year, $124 million deal with the New York Knicks. In so doing, Anthony walked away from a chance to join the more contention-ready Chicago Bulls, albeit at a significantly lower price. Time will tell if Melo made the right move in hitching the last of his prime basketball years to Phil Jackson’s Ring Expr ...

Derrick Rose's 'Mission' for Superstar Return Is Not Impossible

Aug 1 2014 1:23pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Don't let the rhapsodic waxing or compelling video clips fool you. Derrick Rose's road back to NBA royalty carries no guarantees of a hero's return. Yes, by all accounts, he's shredding the competition at Team USA training camp. For his short- and long-term NBA future, all of that means...nothing really. Maybe it serves as a reminder of his tremendous talent, but most fans didn't need the me ...

Derrick Rose off to Impressive Start in Make-or-Break Year for Career

Jul 30 2014 9:31pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Derrick Rose is something of an NBA myth at this point, or at least an unfortunate exercise in what could have been. It isn’t difficult to imagine the showdowns basketball fans could have been treated to in the Eastern Conference Finals between the stifling defense of a fully stocked Chicago Bulls team and the mighty Miami Heat machine had Rose stayed healthy. The one time we actually got to see it, Miami won in five games in a series that featured multiple nail-biters and was ...

How LeBron James Can Help Dion Waiters Become the Next Dwyane Wade

Jul 28 2014 9:45pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Miami Heat might’ve been an aging goliath, but compared to the alternative LeBron James now faces with the Cleveland Cavaliers—youth and talent, sure, but with baggage enough for an airport claim—you can’t say he took the easy way out. It doesn’t help that James leaves behind two Hall of Famers, of course. Unless, however, King James is able to do something almost as difficult as bringing a banner to his title-starved state: turning Dion Waiters into the next Dwyane ...
