What? You’ve never heard that one? You make a Kleenex dance by putting a little boogie in it, of course. How else can you explain Jim Boeheim electing to pick his nose instead of using a Kleenex at the Big East Tournament? The Syracuse Orange were taking on the Seton Hall Pirates at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night in a Big East Tournament showdown. While the action on the court was intense, it hardly could match up to the unparalleled vigor and rigorous fervor with which Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim attacked his right nostril in a sublime demonstration of inglorious nose-picking. I mean this Jim Boeheim guy really went to town on his nose gold-digging expedition. You can tell he’s been there before. Knuckle-deep in his nostril, I mean, not the Big East Tournament.
GIF and video goodness (for lack of a better word) follow.
There you have it. In case anyone was wondering or cares, Syracuse ultimately secured a 75-63 victory over Seton Hall to advance to the Big East Tou...
BEST OF MAXIM
Jim Boeheim thought about the old times.
On Wednesday, Boeheim, who has been Syracuse's head coach for 37 years, walked into the Madison Square Garden locker room. Inside the world's most famous arena, he had no shortage of memories to ponder: Of the 31 Big East tournaments he's coached here, of the 14 Big East tournament finals his Syracuse teams have played in, of...
DIGGING FOR GOLD
You can never be too comfortable when you’re standing on the stage of Madison Square Gahhhden. Unless you’re Syracuse hoops coach Jim Boeheim. In which case, he doesn’t care what you think, especially if you’re Andy Katz. He’ll pick his nose no matter who’s looking, even on camera. Boeheim did just that during the second round of the Big East Tourney on Wednesday...
Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim forgot that he was on national tv during the first round of the Big East Tournament on Thursday against Seton Hall. How does Boeheim’s pick rack up agains these guys?
It is difficult to believe, but it has been 10 years since Carmelo Anthony led Syracuse to their first National Championship. Unfortunately, for Syracuse fans, it was his only season in upstate New York. After winning a title, he took his talents to the NBA where he became the 3rd overall pick in the June 2003 draft. No one can fault Anthony for leaving early considering the money...

Syracuse hung on in overtime tonight, defeating Georgetown by a score of 58-55 in what is now officially the final Big East game between the two schools. Here is the last play, along with Jim Boeheim and John Thompson shaking hands afterwards.
Syracuse Orange coach Jim Boeheim is paying way too much attention to the Big East Tourney to use a kleenex, so he's got to pick his nose.
We’ve all been there. You have something in your nose that you just know can’t be blown out. Sometimes it gets to the point where it doesn’t matter who’s watching — you just have to dig. It appears that happened to Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim during the Big East Tournament on Wednesday.
As you can see, cameras spotted Boeheim digging for gold while wearing his baller eyeglasses...

It had to end this way. Syracuse vs Georgetown in the final Big East Tournament. Friday night in the Garden. One more game, winner gets permanent bragging rights, loser has a stale feeling and will always be remembered by the alumni as the 2013 team that lost to their bitter rival...
Syracuse and Georgetown, one more heavyweight clash in Madison Square Garden.
Two original Big East titans toe-to-toe on the New York stage.
Jim Boeheim. John Thompson.
OK, so it's John Thompson III now. Still a juicy matchup.
One ... last ... time.
And that's not all. How's this for a second act in the Friday night semifinals? Notre Dame against Louisville in the...
Syracuse didn't close out its final regular season as a member of the Big East the way it would have liked, though a strong showing in its last conference tournament at Madison Square Garden would be a nice way to end its 34-year run in the league.
The 19th-ranked and fifth-seeded Orange begin their quest for their first Big East tournament crown in seven years when they face...
The 2013-14 ACC basketball season just got more interesting.
With Syracuse and Pittsburgh coming in, ACC hoops was already getting a needed boost. But with Notre Dame joining the conference in July, a year earlier than originally planned, the ACC will be even better.
The Irish's move comes at a great time.
Notre Dame has been relevant in basketball for quite some time, a...
We have a Scoop Jardine sighting! SU’s floor general for last year’s Orange squad tweeted out his displeasure with his former coach’s statement on Georgetown’s Otto Porter being the best small forward in Big East history.
Porter is certainly a stud, but Jardine might have a point here. Carmelo Anthony did win Syracuse a title in his first and only season with the Orange...

This week’s ASE’s Pick of the Week feature is dedicated to the Big East, and more specifically the Georgetown-Syracuse rivalry. Tonight, the two will clash for one last time as Big East rivals. Next season, Syracuse will be part of the ACC, and Georgetown will be part of the Catholic Seven, or the new Big East, which I’m having difficulty accepting...
One side features names like Thompson, Ewing, Mourning and Iverson and the other has names such as Boeheim, Coleman, Washington and Anthony.
Sadly, there's only time for one more Big East meeting between two of the conference's flagship programs - Georgetown and Syracuse.
The historic matchup takes place in Friday night's tournament semifinals, with the No. 19 Orange...
