The SU head coach emphasized the cleanliness of his team and expressed displeasure with the NCAA's rulings two weeks ago.
For those who have always thought or wondered, SU men’s basketball coach Jim Boeheim made it abundantly clear Thursday morning.
He does not run Syracuse University, and his time with the program is running out.
During a press conference at the Carrier Dome, Boeheim addressed his intention to file an appeal with the NCAA regarding his nine-game suspension, handed down March 6 following an investigation into multiple violations by the program, as well as the claim that he plans to retire in three seasons.
In a release provided by Syracuse Athletics, SU men's basketball head coach Jim Boeheim released a statement Friday evening in response to NCAA sanctions placed on the program following an investigation into multiple off-court violations.
Rakeem Christmas struggled in his final home game at SU against the top-ranked Cavalier defense.
Syracuse started strong defensively in Monday’s matchup with No. 2 Virginia, but it was the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season-champion Cavaliers that eventually dominated both ends en route to a 59-47 victory on Syracuse’s senior night at the Carrier Dome.
With the win, the Cavaliers clinched their second-straight ACC regular-season title, becoming the first program other than Duke or North Carolina to do so since North Carolina State in 1974.
The ban stems from violations initially reported to the NCAA in 2007.
Syracuse University has initiated a self-imposed post-season ban for the 2014-15 men’s basketball season as part of its case pending before the NCAA Committee on Infractions, according to a release by Syracuse Athletics on Wednesday afternoon.
The ban includes the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament and all other post-season tournaments, namely the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament and the National Invitational Tournament (NIT).
