NCAA: ACC Won't Discipline Syracuse Coach Jim Boeheim for Outburst

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.

Texas IS NOT Paying Each Athlete $10,000, But AD Steve Patterson Said They Might if UT Loses in Court

Oct 22 2014 3:28pm CDT | Source: The Big Lead

Talk about lost in translation: The Dallas Morning News was at a forum in Washington D.C. Wednesday where Texas AD Steve Patterson talked about paying student-athletes $10,000 to cover “college expenses that aren’t covered by a traditional full scholarship” and “compensation for the university’s use of his image.” But the Morning News story led to even more questions – does the $10k cover just football and basketball players, or a ...

Danny Green Took a Selfie at the Berlin Holocaust Memorial

Oct 8 2014 8:14am CDT | Source: The Big Lead

Danny Green took a selfie at the Holocaust memorial in Berlin during the Spurs’ trip to Germany. He posted the same photo to Instagram, but captioned it differently: “A lot of history here, more than you could imagine…very sad/tragic things happened #holocaust #berlin.” If Green was on a guided tour at the memorial, he was likely told the significance of the blocks, which grow taller in size as you reach the center to symbolize how Hitler’s movement grad ...

Syracuse Basketball: Revisting Trevor Cooney's High School Scouting Report

Sep 24 2014 10:50pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It seems like it has been quite some time since Trevor Cooney joined the Syracuse basketball team. Cooney is entering his redshirt junior season for the Orange and will be looked to as one of the leaders of this year's squad. Cooney will again be the team's main three-point shooting option, and the offense, at least early on, will likely go as Cooney goes. As Cooney prepares for the season as a go-to player, let's take a look back at his h ...

The players can't be ignored when discussing FIBA reform

Sep 15 2014 9:29am CDT | Source: SBNation

The problem with the argument that top players are merely pawns to heighten Mike Krzyzewski's visibility during the FIBA World Cup: the players themselves don't see it that way. On the occasion of Team USA trouncing Serbia on its way to FIBA World Cup gold on Sunday, Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski wrote a strong, pointed column calling for the end of NBA veterans in international competition, with particularly sharp barbs reserved for Mike Krz ...
