Syracuse basketball earns back another scholarship after appeal

Back in March, the Syracuse men’s basketball team was hit with heavy sanctions after it was found that the program and coach Jim Boeheim had been committing a litany of violations going as far back as a decade. Originally, the NCAA vacated 108 wins from the program due to the use of ineligible players and reduced their available scholarships by three until the 2018-19 season. On...

Syracuse basketball gets one scholarship per year back

In March, the NCAA hit the Syracuse basketball program and head coach Jim Boeheim with an extremely harsh set of penalties after a string of violations going back as far as a decade. Syracuse and Boeheim filed separate appeals in an attempt to reduce some of the penalties, which rank among the most harsh ever doled out by the organization, and today the NCAA ruled on the school...

Some Good, Some Bad with Appeal Ruling

After an awful lot of time waiting, and waiting, and waiting on the NCAA to rule on Syracuse University’s appeal, we finally have our answer: the Orange, and Jim Boeheim, will still have to vacate more than 100 wins, but Syracuse will get back one scholarship per year through the duration of the penalty. You […]

Should Tyler Lydon Start at Center?

A small rotation got even smaller on Tuesday night when the Orange was struggling against St. Bonaventure in front of a restless home crowd.  Sure, everybody was worried about the team’s rotation with nine scholarship players, but coach Jim Boeheim really only played five guys on his 71st birthday, and it proved exactly why he is in the Hall of Fame. Seniors Trevor Cooney and...

It’s Time to Temper Some Expectations for SU

Every season, it seems like expectations are sky-high for the men’s basketball program, and last...

Jim Boeheim Still Waiting On NCAA

Syracuse basketball opens its regular season two weeks from tomorrow, and the exhibition slate starts on Monday night. It would be logical to think that Jim Boeheim has heard from the NCAA regarding his appeal, and knows just how many games and practices he will miss this January. Of course, as we know, logic has no place in the NCAA. And thus, Jim Boeheim still has yet to hear from...

Jim Boeheim skips Syracuse's final post-game presser

Some considered Jim Boeheim’s post-game press conference today a bigger event than Syracuse basketball’s final game of 2014-15 at N.C. State, but that presser won’t come today. Assistant coach Mike Hopkins has come out to the podium instead of Boeheim after Syracuse’s 71-57 loss to the Wolfpack. Mike Hopkins has come out instead of Jim Boeheim. — Phil D’Abbraccio...

WATCH: Jim Boeheim curses in postgame conference

Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim is generally a friendly guy, but he’s certainly had episodes with the media that might suggest otherwise. Saturday night, the longtime Orange head man was clearly irked at his post-game press conference after being asked about the NCAA investigation that led to Syracuse banning itself from postseason play this season. When asked about what he’d...
