Syracuse Coach Gets Ejected After an Epic Meltdown [Video]
Syracuse Head Coach Jim Boeheim definitely got caught up in the emotions of an incredible game between Duke and Syracuse last night.
Syracuse senior forward C.J. Fair drove to the basket with about 10 seconds on the clock and was called for a questionable charge giving Duke the ball with a two point lead in the second half.
Boeheim then proceeded to rush the court in a rage. He was so mad he almost ripped his coat off!
The officials issued him a double technical and ejected him from the game. Duke won the game 66-60 giving Syracuse their second straight loss.
The Orange where undefeated before they lost to Boston College last Wednesday.
According to ESPN.com,
I just thought that was the worst call of the year, that’s all,” Boeheim said Saturday. “I just hate to see the game decided on that call.”
The Officials still stand by their call but they did acknowledge that it was a very close one.
By the strict interpretation of the rule, it was a player control foul in my opinion,” the official said. “The defender was in position with his feet facing his opponent before Fair raised his hand. I think if you watch it, at least frame-by-frame, it was a player-control foul.”
The ACC has decided they will not punish Boeheim for his tantrum.
