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.
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 Orange men's basketball coach Jim Boeheim picked his nose in full view of ESPN cameras during Wednesday's 75-63 victory over Seton Hall in the second round of the Big East Tournament.

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...
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...
Being up by 15 points is never a bad thing. Except maybe for Syracuse. Just ask Jim Boeheim:
“It was probably the worst thing to happen to get up 15. If we hadn’t played well and we were up four or five, they probably wouldn’t have done that, but that’s what they had to do at that point to go after it, and that was exactly what I would have tried to do, and that’s what...

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...
It's the end of an era as both of these teams will be headed to a new conference next season. In the begining it appeared as if it would be a game fitting of the end of the Big East as it is currently known--Louisville vs. Syracuse; No. 4 vs. No. 19; Rick Pitino vs. Jim Boeheim.
Yes, sports fans, this one had the making of a great one. For one half it looked like it as the...
Syracuse had a huge lead in the second half and was in perfect position to say goodbye to the Big East with a bang.
It all slipped away so fast.
Lightning fast, like those Louisville guards.
In their final Big East appearance before bolting to the ACC next season, the 19th-ranked Orange wilted against Louisville's relentless pressure defense and squandered a 16-point advantage...
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...
